I have heard that aluminum may be involved in the development of Alzheimer's Disease. Does use of aluminum cookware and drinking from aluminum beverage cans place me at greater risk for developing this disease. Answer: Aluminum is one of the most abundant elements found in the environment. Therefore, human exposure to this metal is common and unavoidable. However, intake is relatively low because this element is highly insoluble in many of its naturally occurring forms. The significance of environmental contact with aluminum is further diminished by the fact that less than 1% of that taken into the body orally is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. The average human intake is estimated to be between 30 and 50 mg per day. This intake comes primarily from foods, drinking water, and pharmaceuticals. Based on the maximum levels reported in drinking water, less than 1/4 of the total intake comes from water. Some common food additives contain aluminum. Due to certain additives, processed cheese and cornbread are two major contributors to high aluminum exposures in the American diet. With regard to pharmaceuticals, some common over-the-counter medications such as antacids and buffered aspirin contain aluminum to increase the daily intake significantly.

Dear Mom,
So. . . . . here's Stella's Story ! Highlights YOU were born on May 31, l911, the 7th child of Polish immigrants who lived on 81st Street on Cleveland's southeast side.
and the great-grandparents of 10 great-grandchildren:

How Family and Friends Can Help Alzheimers Disease Alzheimers disease, the most common form of dementia, is named for the German neurologist Dr. Alois Alzheimer. Healthy brain tissue degenerates with Alzheimers disease. The reasons for this phenomenon in Alzheimers disease are unclear. This degeneration in Alzheimers disease causes a steady memory decline as well as a steady loss of mental abilities. In America there are more than 4 million older people with Alzheimers disease. The number of people suffering from Alzheimers disease is expected to triple within the next 20 years.

TRANSCRIPT Transcript of Perspective
TRANSCRIPT - Early Onset Alzheimer's Reported by Statewide correspondent, Andrea Gallagher
[Sheila Bracken] "It was very frustrating. Sometimes I didn't want to get out of bed because I knew I was going to face the same question over and over and over again and I'd look around and there was somebody attached to my right hip." [Bracken] "He was using the wrong credit card for work things, and getting lost. We would have a lot of scenic routes and area tours when we would get places. Eventually he would have a poor job performance at work that precipitated us going to the doctor's and getting evaluated." The only way to diagnosis the disease is to eliminate everything else. So the Brackens ruled out a brain tumor, sleep disturbances, and eventually came up with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. [Bracken] "If anybody asked him what was wrong with him, he would tell them that his brain was drying up."

147. Alzheimers Treatment
There is no known cure for the Alzheimer s Disease, nor is there any way ofrepairing damage that has already occurred to the brain cells.
There is no known cure for the Alzheimer's Disease , nor is there any way of repairing damage that has already occurred to the brain cells. Most treatment aims to relieve the symptoms of the condition. This is particularly important in the early stages of the disease when the patient is aware of his/her own situation. As the disease progresses, it may be necessary for the patient to move to an assisted living or nursing home, and with help, dignity and quality of life can be maintained. MEDICATION All drugs can be grouped together by how they work (ie, their specific mode of action). The list below includes all the different types of drugs approved for use in the treatment of this condition at the time of publication. Always consult your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about the medication you have been prescribed. Drug Type Effect (In alphabetical order)
Slow down breakdown of acetylcholine, increasing the amount available for the functioning of the brain cells.
Other Drugs Effect
Can reduce the depression experienced by some patients.

Welcome to Burke!
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia in older people. A dementia is a medical condition that disrupts the way the brain works. AD affects the parts of the brain that control thought, memory, and language. Every day, scientists learn more about AD, but right now the cause of the disease still is unknown, and there is no cure. An estimated 4 million people in the United States suffer from AD. The disease usually begins after age 65, and risk of AD goes up with age. While younger people also may have AD, it is much less common. About 3 percent of men and women ages 65 to 74 have AD, and nearly half of those age 85 and older may have the disease. It is important to note, however, that AD is not a normal part of aging. AD is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer, a German doctor. In 1906, Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain tissue of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness. He found abnormal clumps (now called senile or neuritic plaques) and tangled bundles of fibers (now called neurofibrillary tangles). Today, these plaques and tangles in the brain are considered hallmarks of AD. Scientists also have found other changes in the brains of people with AD. There is a loss of nerve cells in areas of the brain that are vital to memory and other mental abilities. There also are lower levels of chemicals in the brain that carry complex messages back and forth between billions of nerve cells. AD may disrupt normal thinking and memory by blocking these messages between nerve cells.

Risk Factors for Alzheimers Disease
by Michelle Badash, MS A risk factor is something that increases your likelihood of getting a disease or condition. It is possible to develop Alzheimers disease with or without the risk factors listed below. However, the more risk factors you have, the greater your likelihood of developing Alzheimers disease. There are still many questions regarding the exact cause(s) of Alzheimers, so risk factors are still being identified. Currently, risk factors for Alzheimers disease include: Age Age is the most important known risk factor for developing Alzheimers disease. The number of people with Alzheimers disease doubles every five years beyond age 65 until age 85, when almost 50% of all people have the disease. Gender Alzheimers disease affects both men and women, but women may have a slightly higher risk of developing the disease than men. Genetic Factors There has been a clear genetic link established for an early-onset form of Alzheimers disease (occurs in people during their 30s, 40s and early 50s), and a genetic link is suspected for late-onset Alzheimers disease. However, a specific gene has not yet been identified. One gene that has been implicated as being a major risk factor for late-onset Alzheimers disease is the ApoE4 gene. Scientists continue to study the role of genetic factors in the development of this disease.

160. Alzheimers Disease Vitamins And Prevention
alzheimers disease information on natural vitamins that may help delay or preventthe disease.
Vitamin K Supplements Information
Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that usually develops in elderly people. Alzheimer's disease is characterized by loss of memory, inability to function normally, and loss of ability to take care for one’s self. This disease has no known cause; however, it involves the abnormal breakdown of an important neurotransmitter in the brain called acetylcholine. Although some researchers believe that Alzheimer's is linked to high concentrations of aluminum in the brain, studies indicate that the two are not related.
Nutritional supplements that may be helpful for Alzheimer's patients
has been found in several clinical trials to delay the progress of Alzheimer’s, improve memory, and increase overall performance in some Alzheimer’s patients. However, to date there is no valid evidence to support these findings.
Prelimary studies have shown that antioxidant vitamins, including vitamin C or vitamin E , may help to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Other research has shown that Vitamin E may help to improve brain function in older adults.
Some researchers believe a substance known as DMAE (2-dimethlaminoethanol) can improve levels of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter. In one clinical trial involving individuals suffering from senile dementia, participants were given 600 mg of DMAE three times per day for four weeks. While DMAE did not appear to make any significant changes in memory, positive behavior changes were seen in some people. Unfortunately, other studies have shown no considerable help was found when supplementing DMAE for Alzheimer’s disease.
