I keep hearing about a cure for Alzheimer's. There is no such thing as a cure for Alzheimer's. I believe that it needs a prevention not a cure. By the time it is diagnosed, and only by anecdotal information, the damage has been done and it is not fixable. I believe it is not caught like the flu but it is in your DNA/genes and you inherited it. One can go through their entire life and not encounter it but something like an illness or accident or whatever will trigger it. I have been there with my wife. She was beautiful and had an accident requiring an operation. It took 3 operations to fix her shoulder injury. When fixed she was mentally unstable and went completely downhill till dying after 16 years and there was nothing left of her when she passed. Lobby for prevention not cure. A cure stops it dead in its tracks but the damage remains and is not fixable.
