    Alzheimer’s Breakthrough May Stop Memory Loss Before it Starts

    Researchers have made a breakthrough in treating Alzheimer’s disease — but treatment needs to happen before symptoms begin.
    A new paper published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia details new understanding of how the disease develops, which can start as long as a decade before someone begins losing their memory.
    The researchers found evidence that the disease begins when brain neurons start to divide, which is unusual after birth. The neurons die, beginning a process that leads to the formation of plaques in the brain.
    Early intervention is key here, according to the lead researcher. “It is my opinion that we will never be able to cure Alzheimer’s disease by treating patients once they become symptomatic,” says George Bloom, a University of Virginia professor and chair of the school’s department of biology, in a statement.
    But with this new knowledge about how the disease begins, researchers think there may be a preventive treatment: metamine, an FDA-approved medication with minimal side effects. Researchers think patients with biomarkers for Alzheimer’s, but none of the symptoms yet, could take it to ward off the disease.
    “Perhaps this could prevent the disease or slow its progression long enough that the average age of symptom onset could be significantly later, if it happens at all,” Bloom says.

    An active compound in marijuana called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has been found to promote the removal of toxic clumps of amyloid beta protein in the brain, which are thought to kickstart the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

    Regardless of the purported cure, preventive medication is huge business. They won't guarantee you won't get the disease but sell you drugs to prevent it your entire life.

    Soon everyone will be going in for their weekly/biweekly/monthly or whatever anti alzheimer deterrent medication.

    So many complain about vaccines. Vaccines are bad business. One shot and you don't get the disease. Cancer is big business. Don't find a cure. Alzheimer big business who would want a one time shot to cure it when we can have a lifetime of pharmaceuticals.

    Please tell me why I should worship the state (who apparently is the only party that can possess guns without question).

    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    Or maybe "treatment" should STOP, before it causes dementia...
