Alzheimer's Vaccine; Hype or Hope - September 2016
Experts at Adelaide's Flinders University working with US scientists claim to have made an Alzheimer's breakthrough that may result in the world's first dementia vaccine. This vaccine may not only prevent but also reverse early stages of Alzheimer's, the most common form of dementia. With 7.7 million new cases each year there is good reason why the US government has financially backed this research. A PubMed cite that for the past 20 years there has been 73,000 research articles, yet little progress has been made. Alzheimer's disease research would appear to be in a state of crisis going by these facts. Prevention of Alzheimer's is the key, a proactive lifestyle consisting of a healthy diet coupled with physical and mental activity, early detection and management of high blood pressure.
