WHY SO MUCH ALZHEIMER'S?
Have you ever wondered why there's so much Alzheimer's Disease here in America? Sure didn't seem to be that way when I was younger. In fact, I'm not sure I heard the term used until I got into college. Now the problem is totally out of control. Don't believe me? Check out these latest statistics on Alzheimer's Disease from alz dot org.
WHY THE ALZHEIMER'S EXPLOSION?
Statistics like this beg the question of why. Why has this disease exploded into our every-day lives in recent decades? Just as we do with diseases such as AUTISM; as a nation we tend to spend too much time playing ostrich and ignoring the evidence. It's easier to try and deal with health problems via DRUGS or VACCINES, or to blame faulty GENETICS, than it is to admit that we need to be shouldering much of the blame ourselves. We are always told to trust Big-Pharma and their publicly-funded research machine. They always come up with a solution and save the day. If you are putting your trust in Big-Pharma, the day is likely coming when you won't remember how to dress or bathe yourself.
The truth is, it's high time to stop trusting in EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE and realize that by and large, your health is up to you. In the same way that we know what causes most cases of Lung Cancer, we have a pretty good idea of what causes the majority of Alzheimer's Disease as well. Oh; I see. Your doctor never mentioned any of this to you. That's a shame. Let me share with you what I believe are the top five reasons for or nation's Alzheimer's Epidemic.
If you are concerned about your ability to know what day of the week it is, what you had for breakfast, or whether or not you will recognize your children or spouse as you get older, don't wait until tomorrow to take this post to heart. Instead of letting doctors do all of your health care to you, figure out what you can do for yourself and git-er-done! Start by learning about what constitutes a healthy diet (HERE and HERE). Next, you can LOSE SOME WEIGHT and start a simple EXERCISE PROGRAM. If you are really serious about this issue, you can take a few minutes to learn about the things that RELATE MOST DISEASE PROCESSES to each other.
