The Question arises: Is Alzheimer’s disease really Mad cow disease in disguise?
Yesterday I came upon a very intersting article in the State of the Nation Blog about the deep scientific research into the modern Alzheimer tsunami we see in older but in younger people too, in our western world.
The Links Between ‘Mad Cow’ Disease And Alzheimer’s Are Astounding And Suggest Alzheimer’s Is A Contagious Disease: ‘The Body Count Is Real, The Denial Is Disturbing’
– ‘Each victim becomes an incubator and distributor of the Pandora-like pathogen’
Just over a week ago on February 18th, we published a story on ANP titled “This Is What The MSM Will Never Tell Us About ‘Zombie Deer’: Chronic Wasting Disease Is A Time Bomb For Agriculture Just Waiting To Explode“ which within our comment section, ANP reader ‘Teshuvah‘ left the following comment that immediately caught my attention:
“There is a scientist named Gary Chandler in CO who has written extensively on this subject. Prions in Sewage Sludge – Alzheimer’s An Infectious Disease | Gary Chandler”
‘Teshuva‘ had linked to this story by Chandler at his blog and of course, I decided to follow up on what Chandler had to say. And while digging into Chandler’s claim, that Alzheimer’s disease is closely related to ‘Mad Cow‘ disease and that Alzheimer’s is indeed ‘infectious‘ and ‘contagious‘, just like ‘Mad Cow‘, I was stunned with the information that he had unearthed.
As we’ll see in this ANP story, Chandler’s claims are backed by the work of former Nobel Prize winning neuroscientist Dr. Stanley Prusiner from the University of California at San Francisco who had earned his Nobel Prize in 1997 for actually discovering and characterizing deadly prions and prion diseases. From Chandler’s story.:
Dr. Prusiner claims that all TSEs, including Alzheimer’s disease, are caused by prions.
According to Prusiner, TSEs are a spectrum disease. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which is extremely aggressive and extremely transmissible, is at the extreme end of the spectrum. (ANP: Image at top of story shows that spectrum) Unfortunately, Prusiner’s science is being ignored and we are facing a public health disaster because of the negligence.
Neurologists are just guessing when they make a diagnosis on the prion spectrum. If the patient exhibits memory problems, they are labeled with Alzheimer’s disease. If they have a movement disorder, they are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. If the person exhibits extreme symptoms of both, they are diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). It’s far from a science.
That’s correct. According to the Nobel Prize winning scientist who discovered and characterized prion diseases, ‘Mad Cow‘ disease (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease aka CJD), Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are all related. And as Chandler points out in his story, ‘Mad Cow‘ is incredibly contagious. Might Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases be, too?
These facts are stunning. While Scientific American published this September of 2015 story titled “Evidence for Person to Person Transmission of Alzheimer’s Pathology“, this article over at the US National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health was even more blunt: Studies report a 600% greater risk of dementia in spouses of persons with dementia relative to spouses of persons without dementia even after controlling for important risk factors for dementia. Let that sink in.
