Some research results provide strong evidence that radon progeny become concentrated in brain tissues associated with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

Reducing exposure to radon may help to prevent and/or slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

I hope dementia research continues to bring answers and measures of prevention. It is such a debilitating condition for the sufferers, of course, but family and friends too.

I for one believe that a person has a right to be tested if they suspect they may have it or if it runs in the family. No cure for cancer a host of other diseases but that doesn’t prevent diagnosis!

Very interesting research. I hope it continues despite the nay sayers. They have never had to deal with a family member with end stage dementia, or they wouldn’t hold this opinion.

Thank you for this article. I think it is very necessary for research to continue in Dementia, because it is rapidly becoming a force that we must deal with. The comment of not releasing this test on the public until there is a way to treat it comment is ludicrous. I believe people have a right and a need to know if they have Alzheimer’s dementia. I certainly would want to know when I still had the ability to plan for my care when the disease completely takes my mind.
