In a powerful editorial in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Research, an international team of researchers said evidence that bugs are behind Alzheimer’s is ‘incontrovertible’ and can no longer be ignored.
There are more than 100 studies linking the cold sore bug – herpes simplex virus 1, or HSV-1 to it, as well as a bacterium that causes pneumonia. The researchers argue that after working their way into the brain the microbes lie dormant, only to be awakened by aging or illness. They can then kill vital brain cells, triggering the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. The theory also states that beta-amyloid, the toxic protein often thought to be a cause of the disease, is actually made by the brain to fight off the bugs.
Despite conventional wisdom stating that Alzheimer’s is either caused by faulty genes or a combination of bad luck and aging, the UK research has raised fears the disease could be spread through blood transfusions, operations and even dental work.
The editorial concludes that with tests of hundreds of other drugs coming to nothing, the time is ripe to look at alternatives.
Bugs causing Alzheimer’s is nothing new to the Lyme/MSIDS community.
Two Astounding Quotes from the documentary “Under Our Skin”:
“I extracted DNA from 10 Alzheimer brains that came from the Harvard University brain bank. Using molecular methods I was able to find the DNA of the Spirochete which causes Lyme disease in 7 out of 10 of the Alzheimer specimens that I received from Harvard.” – Dr. Alan B. MacDonald
“We never had, in the last 5 years, a single Alzheimer Disease, Lou Gehrig’s Disease / ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis / MS patient who did not test positive for Borrelia Burgdorferi (Lyme Disease bacteria), not a single one.“ – Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
Iowan, Jack Gordon, is a case discovery of 2 diseases NEVER found together before on 11.22.2015: Lewy Body Dementia, causing violent hallucinations, and Lyme Disease/MSIDS. Using his medical files, he was bitten by a tick 35 yrs. ago, but the doctors never acknowledged it by diagnosing or treating him.
You may recognize Lewy Body Dementia as what Robin Williams’ autopsy revealed. https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/did-robin-williams-have-lyme/
