Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general
term for memory loss. It is estamated that 50 to 80 percent
of those with dementia will have Alzheimers. It is not the
only cause of memory loss. It usually occurrs after age 65.
Alzheimer's worsens over time and is a progressive disease.
The medical industry offers no cure for Alzheimer's disease.
is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking
and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse
over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily
tasks...Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in
the United States. Those with Alzheimer's live an average
of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others,
but survival can range from four to 20 years, depending on
age and other health conditions." http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_what_is_alzheimers.asp

Harold Foster discusses the effects of aluminum in relation
to Alzheimer's disease. This site has discovered research
to substantualte that claim. See our page on Aluminum.
Mr. Foster states that aluminum inhibits three
enqymes which cause an injury to the brain resulting in Alzheimer's.
stress has been implicated in mechanisms leading to neuronal
cell injury in various pathological states of the brain. Alzheimer's
disease (AD) is a progressive disorder with cognitive and
memory decline, speech loss, personality changes and synapse
loss...Alzheimer's disease, in fact, involves a chronic inflammatory
response associated with both brain injury and beta-amyloid
associated pathology...These findings have offered new perspectives
in medicine and pharmacology, as molecules inducing this defense
mechanism appear to be possible candidates for novel cytoprotective
strategies. In particular, manipulation of endogenous cellular
defense mechanisms such as the heat shock response, through
nutritional antioxidants or pharmacological compounds, represents
an innovative approach to therapeutic intervention in diseases
causing tissue damage, such as neurodegeneration. Consistent
with this notion, maintenance or recovery of the activity
of vitagenes, such as the HO gene, conceivably may delay the
aging process and decrease the occurrence of age-related neurodegenerative
