Alzheimer’s Disease Infectious

Alzheimer’s disease is no laughing matter. It’s deadly, incurable and spreading like wildfire. As we discuss in this article, there are several contributing factors to the epidemic. One cause of Alzheimer’s disease is spreading through our daily environment, including our food and water.

Approximately 50 million people around the world have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia today. The number of victims is skyrocketing. The threat is so severe that health officials expect the numbers of people living with Alzheimer’s disease to triple by 2050, if not sooner. That doesn’t count the thousands of people who are dying from the disease every day. That number also is escalating.

Alzheimer's disease and contagion

Unfortunately, a ravenous form of neurodegenerative disease is rising among people of all ages around the world. The scientific name for this family of neurodegenerative disorders is Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). 

TSEs include Alzheimer’s, mad cow, Creutzfeldt-Jakob, chronic wasting, Huntington’s, scrapie and possibly Parkinson’s. The operative word here is “transmissible.” There is no species barrier.

Dr. Stanley Prusiner, an American neuroscientist from the University of California at San Francisco, earned a Nobel Prize in 1997 for discovering and characterizing deadly prions and prion disease. He claims that all TSEs are caused by prions.

CJD and Alzheimer's disease transmissible

Many factors are contributing to the Alzheimer’s disease epidemic. Prions are now the X factor. Industry and government are not accounting for them or regulating them. They are ignoring the threat completely, which violates the Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 in the United States. Other nations also are ignoring laws developed to protect food, air and water.

“There is evidence of the potential transmissibility of Alzheimer’s disease,” says Thomas Wiesniewski M.D. a prion and Alzheimer’s researcher at New York University School of Medicine.

TSEs also mad cow disease and chronic wasting disease in deer. TSE has been found in mink, moose, mice, sheep, cats, elephants, dolphins and many other mammals. Sea mammals are extremely vulnerable, but they aren’t being tested. Sick mammals on land and at sea are a canary in a coal mine. Their sickness confirms an alarming epidemiological trend among humans. An environmental contagion in infectious waste is responsible for the spike among many mammals. There is no species barrier.

This family of disease is caused by a deadly protein called a prion (PREE-on). Prion disease is unstoppable and the pathogen spreads through bodily fluids and cell tissue, including skin, blood, urine, feces, saliva and milk.

The genesis of deadly prions are multiple. They can arise spontaneously within the body as a result of injury or brain trauma. They may be triggered by genetics in some cases. They can be introduced to the body through food, water and other contaminated items.

Unfortunately, the disease pathology is compounded by the victims themselves. Victims produce deadly prions and discharge them into their homes and surrounding environment, including hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices and many other places infinitely. Wastewater treatment plants have been collecting, incubating and redistributing deadly prions and disease for years. They are becoming deadlier every day.

Prions defy all attempts at sterilization and inactivation. Hospitals have admitted exposing patients to deadly prions through infected surgical devices. So far, dental providers have not discussed the issue in public.

Given these deadly dynamics, caregivers and family members can contract prion disease from a person with dementia. Unfortunately they are not being warned accordingly, which is contributing to the global epidemic. It doesn’t require direct contact with the person, but few caregivers are immune from personal contact. We all must take the appropriate precautions because people and animals with prion disease represent an environmental nightmare. Public and private protocols demand reform and we need your voice to demand change to help stop the Alzheimer’s epidemic.

As stated earlier, victims of prion disease spread the pathogen through their bodily fluids and cell tissue. Prions mutate, migrate and multiply with unparalleled efficiency. These killer proteins are unstoppable.

Although there are many causes of Alzheimer’s and other prion diseases, the epidemic is being mismanaged on many levels around the globe. As such, we are recycling the pathogen that causes Alzheimer’s right back into our food and water. We’re dumping these killer proteins on parks, golf courses, ski areas and school grounds.

biosolids land application and disease

For example, the practice of dumping the sewage from billions of people back into our environment adding fuel to the Alzheimer’s epidemic. Applying biosolids to cropland, or any watershed, demands reconsideration. The use of reclaimed wastewater for drinking water is reckless. Since prions are in the bodily fluids of its victims, sewage management is a top concern. Sewage plants can’t detect or stop prions. Just ask the US EPA. Therefore, putting biosolids on parks, crops and golf courses is a very bad idea. Meanwhile, recycling wastewater is an even worse idea. It’s safe to say that every sewage system in the world has been used by a person, if not millions, of people with Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Sewage systems are prion incubators that should be isolated to protect our watersheds, crops livestock and water supplies.

Prion Epidemic Not Limited To The Elderly. We all are vulnerable due to widespread denial and mismanagement. The average age of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s alone is dropping for this reason. Caregivers, family members and others near Alzheimer’s patients are at risk of transmission of the disease. Ask your local coroner if he/she will touch the body of a person who died of prion disease–especially Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (just Google “coroners and CJD protocol”). Researchers have confirmed the transmissibility of Alzheimer’s. The Nobel Laureate who discovered prions has confirmed that Alzheimer’s is a prion disease.

Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease are indistinguishable. Medical professionals cannot tell the difference and the diagnoses are just a guess.

However, it appears that CJD is caused by a more aggressive mutation of prion than Alzheimer’s. Despite the mass confusion, the protective and sterilization protocols for Alzheimer’s and CJD are not the same and millions of people are being exposed to prion disease as a result.

Since the disease barely existed a century ago, Alzheimer’s and several related diseases fit the definition of a global epidemic now. Caregivers and family members must arm themselves with facts that can save their life. Stakeholders must arm themselves with facts that can promote reform because all infected mammals shed infectious prions in their blood, saliva, mucus, urine and feces. Prions also have been found in milk. In essence, the entire body of a victim is contaminated and must be managed accordingly.

To date, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s and other forms of deadly prion disease. Although there are multiple causes, reckless policies around the world are contributing to an unstoppable environmental pathogen that is spreading further every day. Our eBook discusses several more causes of the disease and sources of the pathogen.

Prions are associated with an entire family of neurological disorders that are killing people, wildlife and livestock around the world. These deadly diseases are known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.” TSEs include Alzheimer’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, scrapie, chronic wasting disease and mad cow disease. The disease has killed many species of mammals including dolphins. Victims permanently contaminate the world around them with their bodily fluids. Once contaminated with prions, items cannot be sterilized.
