Alzheimer Epidemic Continues to Explode

New estimates, presented at a recent Alzheimer's Association conference in Washington, paints a tragic picture for the future of our brains.

Currently, more than 26 million people worldwide have Alzheimer's disease, and the forecasters project this number to quadruple by 2050.

At that rate, one in 85 people will have the brain-destroying disease in 40 years, researchers from Johns Hopkins University conclude.

Asia will be hit the hardest, as their society already has almost half, or 12.6 million, cases of Alzheimer's. The United States is projected to reach approximately 8.8 million by 2050, compared to our current 5 million.

Naturally, the pharmaceutical cartels are scrambling to find patent solutions to this growing problem, but few seem to focus on where the real problems lie: in the mercury they still vaccinate children with and the mercury fillings in your teeth. Trace amounts of mercury has already been found to cause the type of
damage to nerves that is characteristic of the damage found in Alzheimer's disease.

Other reasons for the increase in this debilitating brain disease include aluminum and low blood levels of B12 and folate.
Epidemiological studies have suggested lifestyle changes may slow down the onset and progression of Alzheimer's.

A healthy and balanced lifestyle that includes physical exercise, mental stimulation (turn of the TV and do something that involves your brain instead) and nutrient-rich, poison-free food may be the only way to make sure you don't get caught in the dementia epidemic.
