  2. With social interaction, exercise, and diet being treatments for Alzheimer's, why do health insurance companies not cover these costs? If there was a drug or other in-office treatment, they would cover that. Health insurance coverage needs to adapt as the medical treatment adapts with new treatments.

  3. As researchers are admiting and supporting that social interaction, exercise, and diet can prevent AD and others dementia , at last they arenrealizing and admiting that vascular ageing it is the main triggers or the main starters of AD , and that the betamyloid accumulation. it is only consequence of the brain vascular ageing.

    Based in the conclusions above , researchers could just now to stops with the wastes of grants in the flawed amyloid hypothesis and to starts to makes real research with the actual vascular triggers of AD and others dementias.

  4. My late husband was 48 when he came down with this . I spend over 70.000.00 for a nursing home , not counting money for medicine , pads , alarms for bed and wheelchair etc.etc. Is double now after 10 years . I was able to pay since we were big savers but most people can't without losing everything .

  5. Hello, how can anyone claim to be closer to something when they don't know where they are going? The word "cure" is not a clear enough address to start measuring how many blocks away we are from arriving.

    If you don't know where you are going, if you don't know where you have been, if you have no way of measuring where you are, doesn't that pretty much mean you are hopelessly lost? Why do researchers keep producing hopeful utube updates if such is the case? More money, is the answer. Faster is their message.

    Oh me, oh my, is my response.
