Reforms Can Save Lives Neurodegenerative disease and autism have been surging around the world for the past 30 years. A man-made disaster is creating a public health disaster that’s still unfolding. Neurotoxins are driving the epidemic more than age–in some countries more than others. Teenagers are now dying of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease–the most severe form of brain wasting […]

Few Mammals Immune To Transmissible Brain Disease Italian and Algerian researchers released new evidence of prion disease in three dromedary camels found in an Algerian slaughterhouse, according to a new study in Emerging Infectious Diseases. The discovery, now being called camel prion disease (CPD), has raised more questions than answers about this deadly illness characterized […]

Alzheimer’s, CJD Infectious Millions of people are becoming caregivers for friends and family members with Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a silent epidemic that’s creating family crises around the world. In addition to the shock of the sudden dependency, at least some caregivers (family members and professionals) are being misinformed and exposed to deadly pathogens that can […]

Prion Disease Spreading With Infectious Waste Mad cow disease has again raised its ugly head in the United States. Thanks to misinformation and mismanagement by government, the problem will persist. Government and industry representatives announced yesterday that an 11-year-old beef cow in Alabama tested positive for prion disease. Also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), […]

CWD Fueled By Infectious Waste  Norway and the greater Scandinavian region are experiencing some of the highest rates of neurodegenerative disease in the world. The human epidemic is fueling a related epidemic among wildlife. Norway will slaughter hundreds of reindeer to tackle a mere symptom of a bigger problem. Mismanagement is pouring fuel on the […]

Prion Disease If you think that you and your family are immune to the surging epidemic of neurodegenerative disease, think again. Neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It’s getting worse every day thanks to mismanagement and misinformation. Infectious proteins known as prions are involved with most forms of neurodegenerative disease in mammals. […]

Prion Disease Surging Neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Misinformation and mismanagement are contributing to the surge. Alzheimer’s disease alone is killing 50-100 million people now. Experts suggest that the prevalence will quadruple by 2050. It probably won’t take that long. Death rates from heart disease and cancer are dropping globally due to […]

Neurological Disorders and Infectious Waste Neurodegenerative diseases are the fastest-growing causes of death around the world. The mismanagement of infectious waste is contributing to the epidemic. Dr. Stanley Prusiner earned a Nobel Prize in 1997 for his pioneering research on deadly prions—an infectious form of protein that connects a deadly spectrum disease called transmissible spongiform […]

Chronic Wasting Disease and Infectious Waste Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Brain disease also continues to expand in wildlife. Is there a connection? Keep reading to find out why: Alzheimer’s disease is an infectious prion disease; Prion infectivity is in the […]

Cures Alzheimer’s Disease In Mice A trial of antibody therapy against human prion disease is moving forward, John Collinge, MD, professor of neurology and head of the department of neurodegenerative disease at the University College London Institute of Neurology, reported during his presentation. Dr. Collinge has shown that variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) was due to […]

Biosolids and Brain Disease In 1972, world leaders realized that dumping millions of tons of sewage sludge into the oceans killed entire underwater ecosystems. Some nations stopped the dumping immediately, while others did not. The U.S., for example, finally passed the Ocean Dumping Ban Act of 1988. It required dumping all municipal sewage sludge and industrial […]

Treat Alzheimer’s Disease With Nutrition The brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease collect particles of protein that are not expelled from their bodies for one reason or another. These protein particles start sticking together and forming plaques in the brain, which smother and kill healthy brain cells. This damage starts in the hippocampus—the region of […]
