It is very disheartening to realize that someone you love is having trouble remembering dates, names, places, phone numbers and eventually not remembering anything at all, because they have been slowly struck with Alzheimer’s Disease. It is also a concern for millions of families who contend with a close family member who has this disease, as family history is showing a corrolation of inheritance.
This is a concern for me as well. All of the women in my father’s immediate family, his mother and all of his sister’s, have developed this disease and all, but my one aunt have died from it. My aunt that remains alive is in a care facility and when I look at her there is nothing there in her eyes or her mind.
However, this does not mean that the men in my father’s family remained unscathed from this disease. Cardiovascular disease is being tied to an amino acid, and all of the men in my father’s family, including at this point, one of my brothers, had or have cardiovascular disease. The same amino acid is now being tied to Alzheimer’s Disease.
