"Alzheimer's breakthrough as scientists discover how to stop disease in its tracks"
Ben Spencer recently reported this on the U.K. Daily Mail website:
"Cambridge University researchers have found a naturally occurring molecule that can slow the formation of plaques in the brain.
Amyloid plaques are closely associated with declining memory and other Alzheimer’s symptoms.
The discovery raises the prospect of a treatment which could be routinely taken in middle age to stop dementia. It could even result in a pill that could be used to treat dementia in the same way that statins are used to prevent heart disease today."
