Can common medications cause early death
A study in 2011 looked at the risks, if any, of taking a cocktail of medication, if you are aged over 65. The results should act as a warning to us all. Younger readers may laugh at the heading above and laugh. Hell when I was in my twenties I thought people in their sixties were long overdue their wooden overcoat. Once you hit that age it is a different matter. That said who wants to live to a grand old age if they have dementia or Alzheimer's. More Here
Ways that age can affect your memory
_What is it that they say about "You don't know what you have got till its gone?" See I can't even remember that properly.
All joking aside though most of us seem to worry about loss of memory, at some time or another. It may just be that you are under stress, working too hard, have no relaxation time or is it that you are getting old?
Memory loss is more often than not associated with aging but it can happen at any time. If you start to think of your brain as the hard drive of a computer, it is easy to see how efficiency problems can occur.
Let's face it, usually we regularly defrag our computers, check for errors and repair the problem and delete unwanted files. This is not so easy with your brain. I will give you an example. My Mum died in 1975. To this day, some 34 years later I can still remember her old telephone number, no prompting needed. Yet if I change my computer password at work, and take a couple of days leave, my mind is not so willing to retrieve the necessary information.>>>>Read More Here>>>>
Early detection of Alzheimer's disease but is it worth knowing?
_Alzheimer's disease is a terrible condition. In so many ways the person affected dies in almost every sense of the word. However their earthly body is still alive and may even be fairly well.
It must be awful, for example to be married for say forty years and then one partner have Alzheimer's. In either a short or long period of time the affected person will lose short term memory and may become like a stranger to their partner and family.
Some patients become aggressive and, ultimately, most will need long term care.
How sad and what a dreadful prospect for many of us.
Recently there have been press reports about recent discoveries regarding the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's.
My first reaction was why would I want to know twenty years before it happened that I was going to get Alzheimer's with age. Of course, when I gave the matter more thought it was not as simple as that.
