Hey, we all know somebody that has Alzheimer's


A SIMPLE infection early in life could trigger Alzheimer’s, scientists claim.
Research has discovered that chronic inflammation leaves the brain vulnerable to developing the disease.

The breakthrough could lead to new treatments and even to ways of stopping Alzheimer’s before it develops.

Previously, inflammation seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s sufferers was thought to be a side effect of the disease.

The new findings suggest that it might be a primary cause, raising the possibility of fighting Alzheimer’s with common anti-inflammatory drugs.

Guy gets a call from the doc. I have terrible news, says the sawbones. Your wife came in for a test and we mixed up the results. She either has AIDS or Alzheimers.

Oh my god, what do I do, says the husband?

Relax says the doc, I got a plan...send her to the store. If she finds her way back, don't fuck her.

Okay, I'm going to hell for that.

Problem with the long term use of
anti inflammatory drugs is they tend to have other negative effects.....like renal based hypertension. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
