Alzheimer’s disease (AD), also referred to only as Alzheimer’s, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common beginning symptom is short-term memory loss.
Symptoms can include:
- Problems with language
- Disorientation(including easily getting lost)
- Mood swings
- Loss of motivation
- Not managing self-care
- Behavioral issues
Many people with Alzheimer’s withdraw from family and society as their disease progresses. Over typically a three to nine-year period, bodily function declines, and the disease ultimately leads to death.
Alzheimer’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease. Only 5% of people have the Alzheimers gene. Alzheimer’s is caused by deficiency and toxicity. If you are among that 5 %, you do not have to express that gene. You can prevent it. These are some causes:
Cholesterol is an essential component of neurons. Your brain can contain up to 30% cholesterol, which is necessary to develop and maintain neuronal plasticity and function. Cholesterol is imperative to brain function.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a “Safety Announcement” earlier this year warning that the statin drugs prescribed to lower cholesterol have been linked to the following conditions:
- Liver damage
- Memory loss and confusion
- Type 2 diabetes
- Muscle weakness (for certain statins)
It is proinflammatory and addictive and plays a vital role in causing Alzheimer’s disease. Many studies have linked sugar to Alzheimer’s disease.
Aspartame is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. R.H. Roberts is a diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning and author of “Defense Against Alzheimer’s Disease.” He believes Aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer’s Disease.
Obesity hurts the brain. The physical size goes down as you gain weight. Higher BMI (over 40) is shown to have links to a higher risk of dementia than average-weight people.
Which include the popular drugs lorazepam (Ativan), alprazolam (Xanax), and clonazepam (Klonopin).
A six-year study published in the British Medical Journal found a 51% increase in Alzheimer’s disease in people that took benzodiazepines for more than three months. The study followed 1,796 people with Alzheimer’s disease and 7,184 healthy controls.
Having had depression earlier in life has now been associated with a doubled risk of developing dementia. Depression doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s in women and quadruples it in men.
High blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol, also increase Alzheimer’s risk.
