Alzheimer’s A Transmissible 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.

Chronic Wasting Disease Caused By Dumping Of 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

Biosolids Spreading Brain Disease Among Mammals 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

Sewage Sludge Spreading Infectious Waste More than 50 million people around the world have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It’s the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Alzheimer’s disease is a member of an unstoppable family of neurodegenerative diseases known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.” Related diseases are killing wildlife and

Prion Disease Killing Many Mammals Prions are known to migrate, mutate and multiply. They become more voracious as they move from one host to another. New research adds to the bank of evidence that a deadly prion is a deadly prion and they know no borders between species. For years, food safety experts and wildlife

Sewage Sludge Expands Prion Pathways Soil may serve as an environmental reservoir for prion infectivity and contribute to the horizontal transmission of prion diseases (transmissible spongiform encephalopathies [TSEs]) of sheep, deer, and elk. TSE infectivity can persist in soil for years, and we previously demonstrated that the disease-associated form of the prion protein binds to soil

Prions Link Mad Cow Disease, Chronic Wasting Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease Prion disease is being mismanaged around the globe, which is contributing to the migration, mutation, and exponential growth in the deadly contagion.

Prions Cause Many Neurological Disorders By Stanley B. Prusiner, Nobel-Prize Laureate, Prion Discovery and Research Fifteen years ago I evoked a good deal of skepticism when I proposed that the infectious agents causing certain degenerative disorders of the central nervous system in animals and, more rarely, in humans might consist of protein and nothing else.
