10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's Disease

By Maureen Pratt

 

Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating and progressive brain disease that causes changes in thinking, reasoning and behavior. An estimated 5.4 million people in the United States have the disease and, although it is more common in people age 65 and older, younger people in their 30s, 40s and 50s can develop it, too. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but today, there are more treatments and support available for Alzheimer’s patients and their families, particularly if the disease is detected and diagnosed in the early stages. The Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org) has developed a list of 10 warning signs that might indicate the presence of Alzheimer’s or another dementia. This list is not a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional, but it does provide helpful information that can then be discussed with your doctor:

Here's what was found: "The average exercise bike harbors 39 times more bacteria than a cafeteria tray. Typical free weights have 362 times more germs than a toilet seat. And the treadmill you're running on averages 74 times more bacteria than a typical public bathroom faucet."

Cool.

Knowing that most of us bring our phones to the gym, it's a good bet we're hauling all those germs home with us and our fingers should be quarantined in infectious disease tents.

A safer workout would be to just do pushups in a bus station restroom and then jog off a cliff.

   

 

Just a little (un)health(y) news.

God is Love!~Jesus saves!  :D

Your average kitchen is dirtier (more germs) than your average bathroom! Not suggesting you have your dinner in the bathroom.

Alzheimer's Is Type 3 Diabetes

The idea that Alzheimer's is a form of diabetic disease has been gaining currency in medical circles for almost ten years. The accumulated evidence is now so strong that many specialists are now comfortable referring to Alzheimer's as type 3 diabetes.

Researching the literature suggests that people with type-2 diabetes have a stronger possibility of having Alzheimers at a later time. In other words if the person has a resistance to insulin they are more likely to develop Alzheimers but, not assured. The research has been around for some time and still continuing. Both are complicated diseases. Some literature is most likely to grab on the idea for what ever reason, but it is still best to actually look at the research and not the Blogs/etc.

That is certainly true!! I know of a number of really healthy eating individuals that have died of various diseases over the years, and some that have not and lived very long lives! Obviously the exception and not the rule!!
