Article on Alzheimer’s disease

Philip Ball’s article in The Guardian is terrific.

It explains many complex aspects very clearly, especially amyloid and tau proteins and the history of different approaches to drug development.

Read to the end, where he mentions the possible link between Alzheimer’s and the bacteria that cause gum disease.

Seems like we should embrace teeth-cleaning with far more enthusiasm and hope.

It won’t hurt.
