What Causes Alzheimer’s Disease
More than 45 million people in the world have dementia today. Some countries are impacted more than others (see Risk by Country).
There are many more questions than answers regarding Alzheimer’s disease. However, if we connect the dots, it paints an ugly picture about an unstoppable pathogen associated with many neurological diseases.
Dr. Stanley Prusiner, an American neuroscientist from the University of California at San Francisco, earned a Nobel Prize in 1997 for discovering and characterizing deadly prions and prion disease, also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). He claims that all TSEs are caused by prions. President Obama awarded Prusiner the National Medal of Science in 2010 to recognize the importance of his research. According to Prusiner, TSEs all are on the same disease spectrum, which is more accurately described as prion (PREE-on) disease Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is at the extreme end of the spectrum. Prusiner’s science is being ignored and we are facing a public health disaster because of the negligence.
People and animals dying of prion disease contaminate the environment around them because prions are in the urine, feces, blood, mucus and saliva of each victim. Not only are homes and hospitals exposed to the prion pathogen, so are entire sewage treatment systems and their by-products. Each victim becomes an incubator and a distributor of the Pandora-like pathogen. The human prion is resistant to both heat and chemicals. It’s reported that prions released from people are up to a hundred thousand times more difficult to deactivate than prions from most animals. Sewage from hospitals, nursing homes, slaughterhouses, morgues, mortuaries, veterinarians and other high-risk places enters the same sewage system. Wastewater treatment plants can’t detect or neutralize deadly prions.
“There has been a resurgence of this sort of thinking, because there is now real evidence of the potential transmissibility of Alzheimer’s,” says Thomas Wiesniewski M.D. a prion and Alzheimer’s researcher at New York University School of Medicine. “In fact, this ability to transmit an abnormal conformation is probably a universal property of amyloid-forming proteins (prions).”
A new study published in the journal Nature renews concern about the transmissibility of Alzheimer’s disease between people. A second study by the same scientist in early 2016 adds to the stack of evidence. Wastewater treatment plants are collecting points for prions from infected humans. The sewage treatment process can’t stop prions from migrating, mutating and multiplying before being discharged into the environment where they can kill again.
Related diseases are killing wildlife and livestock. The TSE epidemic represents an environmental nightmare that threatens every mammal on Earth.
TSEs include Alzheimer’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease and chronic wasting disease in deer. Few, if any, mammals are immune. There is no cure and there is no species barrier.
TSEs are caused by a deadly protein called a prion (PREE-on). Prion disease is unstoppable and the pathogen spreads through the bodily fluids and cell tissue of its victims. Blood, saliva, mucas, milk, urine and feces carry deadly prions from the victim. All tissue is infectious.
Prions linger in the environment, homes, hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices, restaurants and many other places infinitely. They migrate, mutate, multiply and kill with unparalleled efficiency. Prions defy all attempts at inactivation. Victims often become infectious before they appear sick.
Although there are many causes and pathways contributing to the prion disease epidemic, many pathways are being mismanaged around the globe. Via sewage, biosolids, and reclaimed sewage water, we’re recycling the prion pathogen that causes Alzheimer’s right back into our food and water. We’re dumping these killer proteins on crops, parks, golf courses, ski areas and school grounds. Rain and irrigation spread them throughout our communities and watersheds.
Since prions are in the bodily fluids of its victims, sewage mismanagement is a top concern. Sewage treatment plants can’t detect or stop prions. Just ask the U.S. EPA. Therefore, putting biosolids on parks, crops and golf courses is a very bad idea. Dumping sewage from billions of people on land and at sea spreads the prion pathogen far and wide.
Based on these facts, water reuse (reclaimed wastewater) for drinking water is reckless. Using sewage sludge and biosolids on crops, grazing land, lawns and gardens is foolish and fraudulent. It’s been proven that plants grown in sewage sludge absorb prions. As such, they become infectious to humans and other mammals.
Every sewage system in the world has been used by a person, if not millions, of people with Alzheimer’s disease and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Sewage systems have become prion incubators. Biosolids, water reuse and sludge disposal have made them prion distributors. It’s safe to say they are committing bio-terror with weapons of mass destruction. The contamination is permanent and spreading daily.
People can acquire deadly prion proteins in a variety of ways, including food, water, dental procedures, surgery, blood donations and more. Unfortunately, victims of prion disease spread the pathogen through their bodily fluids and cell tissue. Prions mutate, migrate and multiply with unparalleled efficiency.
Deadly prions are contagious and unstoppable. They are known to migrate, mutate, multiply and kill with incredible efficiency. When we connect the dots between all forms of prion disease in humans and other mammals, we see an explosive growth rate around the world.
