Alzheimer’s disease is the scourge of the elderly. Characterized by mental decline, difficulty understanding and thinking, confusion, forgetfulness, disorientation, loss of memories and an inability to create new ones, and the inability to recognize common things, among other devastating symptoms, Alzheimer’s has no known cure. This is one of the most devastating illnesses for families to cope with, as they literally watch their loved ones disappear slowly before their eyes.
There is no known cure for Alzheimer’s and the causes of the condition are poorly understood.
Now, an exciting new study by researchers from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine offers real hope for the prevention of Alzheimer’s. The study was published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine.
