   Increasingly scientists are saying that Alzheimers is the result of a protein in the brain.

I vaguely recall a SOP quote where Mrs. White spoke of a terrible disease. What she described sounded  like it could be Alzheimer's. Of course there was no name attached to this disease back in her day.  Does anyone here remember that quote. It was kind of obscure.

A prion is an infectious agent composed entirely of protein material, called PrP (short for prion ... Prions may propagate by transmitting their misfolded protein state. I believe we have enough evidence to understand it is an infectious disease.

I read yesterday that Alzheimers has climbed to the 3rd leading cause if death in the US. While to jump to number 1 is a big jump considering how many people are dying from cancer and heart disease I cannot help but wonder if it is only a matter of time before that happens.

As prion diseases spread in animals, it will spread more rapidly to humans. But, then cancer will also. Few understand the connection between these diseases and the diseases in animals.
