As a certified nutritionist and having worked with a few people suffering from Alzheimers, my own conclusion is that the basic culprit causing alzheimers are free radicals. Those are molecules that have lost one electron. If you have seen a picture of an atom with the two electrons spinning around the center ball,holding that ball in place, then losing one of its balancers, it would wobble. Those wobbling molecules in a brain are damaging everything they crash against. These free radicals come from cigarette smoke, auto exhausts, smoke from incinerators and trains, smoke from manufacturing plants, all pollute our air. The best protection are anti-oxidants from organically grown berries and other fruits.Betty jameson
