Caregivers Warned To Treat Alzheimer’s As Transmissible Disease

Disease Deadly, Unstoppable

If one Alzheimer’s author and advocate is right, millions of caregivers and family members around the world are putting themselves and even others at risk while caring for Alzheimer’s patients. A new book by Crossbow’s Gary R. Chandler explains why some, if not all, forms of Alzheimer’s are contagious. Caregivers and family members must follow strict guidelines to avoid high-risk pathways.

Alzheimer’s: A Survivor’s Guide explains that some, if not all, forms of dementia are contagious. This book explores Alzheimer’s as part of a protein epidemic. It makes several critical points and asks some challenging questions about a form of killer protein called a prion (pronounced PREE-on).

Alzheimer’s deaths in the U.S. alone increased 68 percent between 2000 and 2010. During that same time, deaths from other major diseases, including heart disease and cancer, decreased significantly. Most developed countries are making progress on all health fronts, except for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. (Even autism could share a common thread.)

Meanwhile, government officials around the world are predicting that the numbers of living victims will triple, if not more, within a decade or two. Meanwhile, millions more will die each year of the deadly disease.

“In my opinion, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders such as Mad Cow disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and Chronic Wasting disease all are being mismanaged around the world,” Chandler said. “The outbreaks all started about the same time. All are deadly. None are curable. All are caused by deadly proteins. The correlations speak volumes. Plus, even the healthcare experts at hospitals continue exposing innocent patients to deadly prions. It’s happening more than is being reported — and quite a few are being reported.”

One of the reasons for alarm is that most doctors can’t tell the difference between Alzheimer’s and it’s more aggressive cousin Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). CJD is indisputably contagious. CJD often is misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s — if there is any difference at all. If for no other reason, Alzheimer caregivers should manage against the high rate of misdiagnosis. However, if Alzheimer’s is a prion disease as Nobel Laureate Stanley Prusiner suggests, that puts the disease in the family known as TSEs – transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. Note the first word of that phrase. This deadly family includes CJD, mad cow disease, scrapie and chronic wasting disease. The diseases are unstoppable as the victims contaminate their surroundings with urine, feces, saliva, mucas, blood, milk, and cell tissue. This isn’t science fiction.

One Response to Caregivers Warned To Treat Alzheimer’s As Transmissible Disease

    I was reading in our local newspaper during Ohio deer hunting season. The paper issued a warning to make sure not to consume any deer looking unhealthy. They discussed the wasting disease and how it was connected to prions. A light bulb came on in my head that this sounded like Alzheimer’s disease and the period where they start losing weight and you cannot stop it. That is when I typed Alzheimer’s and prions. Up pops all this information on the Nobel prize Dr. or some title and how he had connected these two too. Then I went on to read how it is contagious. Why are people not being made aware of how they should follow safety precautions, wear gloves, put soiled diapers in sealed bags perhaps wear a mask when changing the patient in messy situations and not eating after them? Where is the information on the Alzheimer’s official sites. This is scary stuff and then they are selling it in bags that people are totally unaware they are not wearing gloves the prions can get into the blood stream with small cuts etc. If you garden know that this stuff may be contaminated by sick cow manure which will go up into the plants like corn, tomatoes, barley, and alfalfa I believe. We need a change in what information is being given out to caregivers NOW.
