I believe that Alzheimer's has a far better chance of being cured than cancer. I have a very dear friend, one of my best, 59 years old and cannot remember 30 minutes ago but can remember things from 40 years ago.

I do not believe for two solid reasons that cancer will ever be completely eradicated. We will certainly find ways, medicines, procedures, etc., to give life longer but to actually cure cancer....no Way.

1. I believe it is a way to keep the population in check. There has to be a balance of life and death.
2. Can you imagine the financial impact globally if cancer were completely cured. It would plummet the world into fiscal chaos for which there would be no fix.
3. Even if a full blown cure were invented, it would be kept under wraps for the reason above.

Sadly!

Interesting.. thank you both for the post. My mother passed away from Alzheimer's within six months. Unfortunately we didn't know she was in the early stages and I should have because the signs were there. She had knee replacement surgery at 82 and it kicked her to the last states of the disease along with the fact that she had been taken Ativan. My medical doctors knows that the disease is in my family but has told me several times a cure will happen in my lifetime but to be thankful that have dyslexia. Odd right?! If a person were to ask me anyone's name under pressure and immediate response would find it difficult to remember.. but if that same instance will remember moments in their life from 25 years ago, very accurate information.

The brain is an amazing gift that God has given us. I could read well by 4 and comprehend a year later. In the first grade teacher notice that tapped my foot when reading and call in my parents as I was cheating. Double tapped learning math. Since at that time they believed only males could be dyslexic.. not knowing any different my brain adapted to learn. So with all that I said don't understand why there is not more attention to the disease and re-mapping of the hemispheres. Know one of the ways they identify is my brain mass shrinkage? Still haven't wrapped my head that one.

Do know that what happen was horrible in so many ways. What I saw from my family, what I noticed about the lack of attention given to lockdown nursing homes....

Aeeeii
