In the last few days, circumstances put several folks in front of me that are over 80 years old, and they are all, or seemed to be to me anyway, in good shape cognitively.
With most of them, Alzheimer’s became a topic. One of them offered a thought. She said nowadays it seems people all over are having problems with memory, and she added that while she was coming up, she rarely heard of such, and that, in her opinion, something major has changed.
In my opinion, it began in a major way in the mid fifties when our society started ingesting so many chemicals. If that’s the case, maybe we can learn to avoid it or slow it from starting, with our diet, but we also need a way to stop it once it’s already there and hopefully be able to reverse some of it.
