ALZHEIMER 

    Scientists still do not know what causes Alzheimer's, so there is no way to definitively prevent it. However, some lifestyle changes might help.* For instance, Studies have shown that you can reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s by not smoking, being physically active, eating a healthy diet, maintaining good cardiovascular health, and exercising the brain.* So basically, doing everything right all the time, which is not realistic. What is realistic is to use common sense. Try to stay healthy and exercise both physically and mentally. In our opinion, currently, one of the best ways to prevent Alzheimer’s is to use your common sense when doing activities. If you are uncertain about what to do, ask or research your question. A lot of information is readily available at your fingertips.

Science Alzheimer's  

Alzheimer’s is a disease nobody wants to develop. As stated previously scientist are still puzzled about the cause of this disease. Generally, we know that each neuron has an axon. This axon is covered in myelin sheath. Myelin helps facilitate signal transmission. Neuronal signals are supposed to transfer from one neuron down the axon to the next neuron. However, Alzheimer’s disease prevents this transmission between neurons. Amyloid Plaques develop on axons which prevents signals from reaching other neurons. Thus, once this occurs, we lose our ability to think and preform functions properly. Below are some links they might be helpful to you or a loved one.
