What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Majid Ali, M.D.

Alzheimer’s disease is disintegration of personality and memory loss with a regression to a childlike state, often with anxiety. It is caused by any combination of the following: (1) accumulation of metabolic toxins in the brain; (2)  incremental load of environmental toxins; (3) deficiencies of brain nutrients; (4) cardiovascular disorders with impaired brain circulation; (5) toxic metals, such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and others; (6) insulin toxicity; and (7) inflammatory-immune stresses associated with such diseases as sarcoidosis, psoriasis, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Some genetic factors are involved in the development of Alzheimer’s dieasee; however the leapfrogging incidence of the diseases raises the question: why are the Alzheimer’s genes getting angry, and angrier by the decades?


Today the words that come up for the title of this article (Pre-Alzheimer’s U.S.A) bring up the same concern. Consider the information summarized below, including my guidelines for preserving brain health at the end and tell me (at aliacademy7@gmail.org) if I should be concerned  about my personal ethics in the choice of my words.


Conditions That Set the Stage for Pre-Alzheimer’s Disease

Below I present some facts and you decide whether my concerns about personal ethics are valid or not.

1. About 70% of adult Americans are pre-obese or obese and both entities are pre-Alzheimer’s conditions. (The incidence of pre-obesity and obesity among American children is leapfrogging).

2. About 70% of adult Americans have pre-hypertension or hypertension and both are pre-Alzheimer’s conditions. (The incidence of pre-hypertension or hypertension among American children is leapfrogging).

3. About 40% of Americans of all ages have pre-diabetes or diabetes which are pre-Alzheimer’s conditions.

4. About 70% of adult Americans at autopsy have clear evidence of cardiovascular disease, which is a pre-Alzheimer’s condition.

5. One in every three American children suffers from inflammatory-immune diseases, which are all pre-Alzheimer’s disease.

6. About 40% of adult American woman are taking antianxiety or antidepressant drugs, the long-term use of which increases the risk of pre-Alzheimer’s disease.

7. One in seven children in the Los Angeles is attending special classes in school, and all conditions requiring such classes are pre-Alzheimer’s disease.

8. All my patients who had 24-hour urinary toxic metal test after a chelator challenge had significant toxic metal load (mercury, lead, arsenic,, aluminum, and others). Do I need to point out that toxic metals are potent neurotoxins and markedly pre-Alzheimer’s disease.

9. There is no reliable data about poisoning of the liver by environmental toxins. The liver is the guardian angle of the brain. Do I need to point out that blocked liver detox pathways markedly pre-Alzheimer’s disease.


Cyber Reality, Evolutionary Reality, and Brain Equilibrium

During a recent train ride from Washington, DC to New York, my wife noticed that only we were speaking softly or looking at the windows. Everyone else in the large compartment was quiet, working a smart phone or on a laptop. Once noted, we were curious if this pattern of coexistence would change anytime during the train trip. It did not, not even once. Will this cyber reality (summarily dismissing the old evolutionary reality of our species) decreases the risk of pre-Alzheimer’s disease or increase it? I am afraid it will have negative effect on the overall human condition and so will increase the risk.


A Safe Prediction

Here is something else: The Alzheimer’s industry hires the most persuasive lobbyists and the U.S. Congress is all too willing to be persuaded for the right price. So hundreds of millions of dollars are being allocated in developing Alzheimer’s drugs. It is a safe prediction that there will never be any satisfactory drugs for preventing accumulation of toxins in the brain over decades.
