The maddening saga of how an Alzheimer’s ‘cabal’ thwarted progress toward a cure for decades

I posted on this a year ago when Leslie Norins, Ph.D. wrote this fantastic paper:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/09/11/its-time-to-find-the-alzheimers-germ/

Alzheimer’s has had a Cabal similarly to Lyme in that research has been hijacked by a group of individuals with blinders on.  According to Norins, the 2017 Alzheimer’s Association had a conference in London where researchers from 70 countries could share progress.  A keyword index of the presentations showed the largest entries, 110, were for amyloid/APP.The next most common item was tau, the tangled protein, with 85 entries. Inflammation—the body’s reaction to something—had 45 mentions.  Presentations of germ importance had only single digit presence: prion proteins (8 entries), infectious disease (4 entries), bacteria (1 entry). Virus was not even listed as a keyword.

Yet numerous researchers have doggedly fought against the myopic focus and have found spirochetes in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients:   https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2016/06/09/alzheimers-byproduct-of-infection/, and Kris Kristofferson was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s but actually had Lyme disease:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/01/04/aluminum-alzheimers-ld/
