Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Alzheimer’s disease alone is killing 50-100 million people now. Millions more will contract the disease this year, while just as many will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. The vast majority of cases are preventable.
Experts suggest that the prevalence of brain disease will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Adding to the momentum is the fact that most forms of brain disease are transmissible. Thanks to misinformation and the mismanagement of infectious waste and bodily fluids, people of all ages are now exposed to an expanding spectrum of brain disease. Defending yourself with facts and smart choices is your best hope.
Adding to the madness is the fact that physicians are withholding millions of diagnoses from patients and their families. It’s saving insurance companies billions each year, while driving unprepared families into bankruptcy.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, physicians in the U.S. only inform 45 percent of patients about their Alzheimer’s diagnosis. The same pattern of suppression is likely at work in most countries. Unfortunately, this mismanagement is just the tip of an iceberg.
Gary Chandler is a prion expert. He is the CEO of Crossbow Communications, author of several books and producer of documentaries about health and environmental issues around the world. Chandler is connecting the dots to the global surge in neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, chronic wasting disease and other forms of prion disease. The scientific name for prion disease is transmissible spongiform encephalopathy. The operative word is “transmissible.” Even the global surge in autism appears to be related.
