How can I prevent Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimer's disease destroys lives. My father was taken by the disease at the age of 55. He died from the disease at 62. For a long time, we didn't know what was happening to him. The doctor's said he was fine, but they were wrong

We were never fully sure until the autopsy, which confirmed he had Alzheimer's disease. Because of our experience, we are motivated to get to the bottom of Alzheimer's. Why does it happen? How can we prevent it?
The medical community was of limited help. They knew how to keep our dad from harming himself and how to keep him comfortable when he was dying - but that's it. They could not stop it. They could not make his life better. They could only keep him alive and sedated.
We started researching. There is a lot of information out there, but none of it is concise. None of it is written for regular people (with the exception of alzforum.org) and a lot of it is biased toward drug discovery.
Ever since the autopsy confirmed Alzheimer's, we have been building an open source wiki page. It is (and will always be) under development. But we are at a point where we are ready to make it known to the public. If you want to look through it and leave us comments or give ideas on areas to explore, please do!!
This page is not "professional" and it is not meant to sell anything. It is a page started for and by our family to get to the bottom of why our dad got Alzheimer's and how we can prevent the same fate. It is always under construction. We are continually reading research papers, exploring new theories and trying to solve this puzzle.
We link to clinical research to back up any claims or ideas. We are not making money from the site and we are not developing a drug or supplement to sell. We just want the answer. Maybe you are looking for answers too? Maybe it will be of some use to you. Maybe it will spark an idea or help you conceptualize the disease in all of it's factors. I don't know. But if you are worried about Alzheimer's or dementia, feel free to check it out. And leave us comments. We want to solve this - and no idea is ridiculous. The whole idea that we are spinning around on a rock hurling through space around a hot burning gas ball is ridiculous - but here we are!
