Why do so many people in America get Alzheimers disease? Could it be related to factory farmed confined feed lot animals? Could it be related to the “garbage” we feed these animals that they would never eat if free roaming? The article below, by Joseph Mercola, explores such a possible cause and what you might do to protect your family and yourself from this horrible death, if this assumption is correct.

- Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Lou Gehrig’s disease appear to be linked to the presence of a protein, TDP-43, which behaves like infectious proteins called prions, responsible for Mad Cow and Chronic Wasting Disease
- TDP-43 pathology is detected in 25-50 percent of Alzheimer’s patients; autopsies show Alzheimer’s patients with TDP-43 were 10 times more likely to have been cognitively impaired at death than those without it
- Alzheimer’s may be a slower moving version of Mad Cow disease, acquired by eating contaminated meats, and Mad Cow is created by a CAFO system that “cannibalizes” herbivores
