1 in 9 American adults over the age of 65 now have Alzheimer's disease


Alzheimer''s disease
(NaturalNews) Cases of Alzheimer's are on the increase, with one out of nine Americans over 65 now suffering from the disease, according to the Alzheimer's Association.

(Upcoming: Attend the FREE online Alzheimer's and Dementia Summit by signing up here.)

There are 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's - roughly 5.2 million are over the age of 65, and an estimated 200,000 suffer from early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

Early-onset (or younger-onset) Alzheimer's has gained more attention recently since the death of legendary women's basketball coach, Pat Summitt, who passed away at the age of 64, just five years after being diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's.

From the Alzheimer's Association:

"These numbers will escalate rapidly in coming years, as the baby boom generation has begun to reach age 65 and beyond, the age range of greatest risk of Alzheimer's. By 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease may nearly triple, from 5.2 million to a projected 13.8 million, barring the development of medical breakthroughs to prevent or cure the disease. Previous estimates based on high range projections of population growth provided by the U.S. Census suggest that this number may be as high as 16 million."

The good news: dementia is preventable and reversible

The good news is that groundbreaking research is being performed in the field of natural treatment and prevention of Alzheimer's. The upcoming free online Alzheimer's and Dementia Summit, will feature a number of experts who have developed natural, non-pharmaceutical methods of addressing the problem.

The focus of the Alzheimer's and Dementia Summit is: "You CAN prevent and reverse Alzheimer's and dementia, despite what you've been told by conventional medicine."

The natural approach to treating Alzheimer's and dementia is proving to be far more successful than Big Pharma drug-based treatments, and several of the participants in the summit have also been able to identify many of the causes of these degenerative diseases - some of which are entirely preventable.

One of the leading experts participating in the summit is Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and founder/editor of Natural News.

Mike Adams' research into food toxins and how they contribute to the development of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and others is changing they way we look at treatment - and prevention.

The Alzheimer's and Dementia Summit will feature an interview with the Health Ranger on the topic of: "Toxic Food - Uncovering the Suppressed Truth," in which he'll discuss the foods you should avoid to prevent dementia and the best nutrients to use in decreasing the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's. Mike will also deliver an important alert regarding commonly used nutritional supplements.

The role of diet in the prevention and treatment of dementia

Adams emphasizes the role diet can play in in either developing or reversing dementia:

"Food can either promote Alzheimer's and dementia. Or it can reverse it. And this is what's crucial to know - Alzheimer's does not need to be a permanent condition if it is caught early and if the causative factors are eliminated from the body."

Conventional medicine does not recognize the causal link between exposure to toxins and the development of degenerative diseases:

"The medical system still comes out of the dark ages of physical modeling of everything and they don't understand systemic influences and really advanced biology and how things work. So the truth is, whether we're talking about Alzheimer's or cancer or diabetes, there are causes that lead to symptoms."

The Health Ranger's laboratory research is important because the FDA and other regulatory agencies do little in terms of testing and monitoring toxins in food. Even organic products often contain dangerous levels of toxins:

"It turns out that the USDA has no limits on heavy metals for organic foods. So no one was testing it and lots of people are eating toxic foods. Our lab is the first to expose it. And that's just one small example of what we run into."
