its really one of the great post i read today very helpful and very valuable post for me thanks for sharing.
I understand that alzheimers is a difficult condition for people to deal with – both the victim and their family, however, if we keep working out how to prevent every form of illness and medical condition won’t we have too many people on this planet?
Coupla thoughts Jenny –
1) There are already too many people on the planet. However, I bet you have or want to have kids. So, what’s up??
2) You must be young – what happens when you get old (if you’re lucky & tough enough) and need the vaccine? Ever seen the movie “Logan’s Run”? I suggest you obtain a copy & watch it, then sit & think for a bit.
Thank you very much …. This very useful article for me and other readers of course. I really like this information. Thank you
