The scientific literature on Alz is tens of thousands of experiments, and reviews.

All of that well-intentioned activity can be summarized easily.

Advanced Alz is terrible, manifest by a complete loss of memory (loss of self) and becoming helpless.
Advanced Alz can last for many months and even years.
Many reasonable ideas about how to stop the progression of Alz have been tested; however, no approach has led to a satisfactory conclusion. Currently, we just do not have a cure for advancing Alz and no vaccine to prevent the disease.

Age and Alz

There is a strong relationship between age and the development of Alz.

Please notice: among citizens over the age 90+ years, that over half them, do not have Alz.

Alz and Gender

Alz affects women more than men.

The chart shows the estimated lifetime risk for Alz, by sex, at ages 45 and 65.

Alz develops slowly during its early stages and often the initial damage is not clearly noticeable. However, one can develop an awareness of the initial damage and take steps to intervene with the aim to prevent a progression of the disease.

Research has identified a number of signs that seem to have a relationship to the development of Alz, called risk-factors. We will encourage behaviors that modify the physiology of the brain for the better by reducing the known critical risks.

The Good News: Research indicates that Alz is preventable, provided that older citizens engage an array of activities that promote a healthy brain.

We also warn individuals about behaviors and events that might increase the risk of developing Alz.

Research also indicates that you should attend to reducing the risks of developing Alz while you still have the capability to do so. Do not delay; act while you still have the capability of reducing your chances of developing Alz.

Act before it is too late.
