It is so rare for me to react to what ever is being said or advertised but this really does annoy me as it gives a false hope to persons who may have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and who read this garbage. Especially when we know sadly there is positively no known cure for Alzheimer's as of yet.

I get so aggravated when advertisers exploit serious conditions with their nonsense in order to play upon people's desperation for a cure.

There is a lot of evidence that Alzheimers might be type 3 diabetes, somehow
related to insulin resistance. But that isn't a quick fix, nor does it help with a
senior who can't or won't radically change their diet. Plus once the damage
is done it's another story.

Quick fixes tempt seniors to flit from one fad to the next. And can be pricey.
Oh and can also be the subject to hours of redundant conversations. My Dads gotten sucked into a few of these "hurry while supplies last" schemes that
always seem to be on a monthly billing schedule. Nothing quite like spending
hours on hold with customer service to cancel a useless fad subscription.

They're advertising WHAT, Johnjoe?

Love us and save us, what will they come up with next - !

You could report the advertisers to the ASA (www.asai.ie) if you feel there's been a serious breach of the code.

It's the ads for equity release that get up my nose more than most. And the personal injury lawyers.

Ugh! - don't start me!

I haven't seen that one Johnjoe but it's like all the other outrageous health claims for countless other products, sad and infuriating all at the same time. We are in an era of easily disseminated false information and it is up to all of us to be wise about our sources.

WHy is is false hope? Be open minded and not afraid of information. Look at all those ads and how right they are in the end. Look at the folks reversing their diabetes lately doing paleo. All those gossip magazines often are right in the end. (Except for Celebrities giving birth to Aliens)
Regarding Alzheimers research.. There is alot of independant study being done right now that is not about one pill solutions but a broad systemic and lifestyl approach that puts protocols in place at the same time. Look up the work of Dr Dale Bredesen. I apply some of his methods and i have reversed many of my parents symtoms. For one, there is no more sundowning, and no more erratic behavior. Mood is very good. My dad plays ping pong, dances, and plays cards. At one point he was distraught and sleeping all day. Not anymore. I give probiotics, high fats in the morning, He has his super coffee at times but usually an espresso every morning , And it kick starts his metabolism.
