(NaturalNews) Contrary to popular belief, dementia is not a normal part of the aging process. The condition, which most often plays itself out in the form of Alzheimer's disease, is an abnormal neurological condition that is likely caused by a combination of factors, including but not limited to things like fluoride in the water, artificial chemicals in food, and mercury and aluminum in vaccines -- but the establishment medical and scientific community will never admit this.
"Dementia is not a normal part of aging -- it is caused by brain diseases that we can beat," said Prof. Kevin Morgan from the University of Nottingham recently, a Scientific Adviser for Alzheimer's Research U.K. But what is his solution? "More investment in research," he told reporters, which is the usual tactic used to address diseases of this nature.
The fact that so-called experts are now actually starting to admit that Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia are preventable is surprising. It represents a one-eighty degree turn from their previous position that the condition is genetic or a completely normal effect of growing old, and that it cannot be avoided in any way. But now, they say that it can be prevented, and insist that more money is needed -- lots more money -- in order to figure out exactly how.
But many studies have already linked numerous environmental and other contaminants as contributors, so why not just start there? Aluminum, for instance, is a known neurotoxin and studies have identified the presence of aluminum in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's. Aluminum is present in most conventional antiperspirant deodorants, and can also be found in vaccines, pharmaceutical drugs, soft drink cans, and cookware -- all things that people are exposed to regularly (http://www.naturalnews.com/030078_dementia_p...
Toxic fluoride is also linked to Alzheimer's disease
and other brain diseases. The chemical, which is artificially added to most municipal water supplies in the U.S., has also been found to accumulate in brain tissue, as well as in cells throughout the body, which makes it a very viable suspect.
"In humans, fluoride has been found to cause arthritis, osteoporosis, hip fractures, cancer, infertility, Alzheimer's disease, and brain damage," says Andreas Mortiz in his book The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush: A Powerful Do-It-Yourself Tool to Optimize Your Health and Wellbeing
Rather than address these issues, however, mainstream researchers have decided instead to just grovel for more money to conduct "research." Rather than acknowledge the fact that chemicals, toxins, and other harmful substances that plague our food, water, and environment are contributing to dementia
, and work to get rid of them, these researchers are simply appeasing the status quo and continuing with business as usual.Sources for this story include:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews...
