Plainfield Chiropractor shares Cool Health News on Alzheimer's Disease

Please read the full article on 'Infectious Theory Of Alzheimer's Disease Draws Fresh Interest' written by Bret Stetka by clicking this LINK.

 'Dr. Leslie Norins is willing to hand over $1 million of his own money to anyone who can clarify something: Is Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia worldwide, caused by a germ?'

"It appeared that many of the reported characteristics of Alzheimer's disease were compatible with an infectious process. I thought for sure this must have already been investigated, because millions and millions of dollars have been spent on Alzheimer's research." 

"In 2016, 32 researchers from universities around the world signed an editorial in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease calling for "further research on the role of infectious agents in [Alzheimer's] causation." Based on much of the same evidence Norins encountered, the authors concluded that clinical trials with antimicrobial drugs in Alzheimer's are now justified."

"If a microbe is responsible for all or some cases of Alzheimer's, perhaps future treatments or preventive approaches will prevent toxin protein buildup in the first place. Both Tanzi and Norins believe Alzheimer's vaccines against viruses like herpes might one day become common practice."
