Alzheimer's drugs cause brain damage and actually worsen memory loss

(By NaturalNews) Big Pharma drugs that are being used on humans right now and promoted as potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease (AD) could cause the very brain damage and memory loss they are supposed to treat. That's the conclusion of University of California at San Diego (UCSD) scientists who just published their groundbreaking findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"Big Pharma researchers have developed drugs that are supposed to treat AD by increasing non-toxic peptides, thereby decreasing the impact of the "bad" peptides which generate beta-amyloid. Instead, they've only ended up producing more brain-damaging peptides." Read full article.

There are several natural approaches to consider. Many herbs have antioxidant potential including ginkgo biloba, curcumin, acai, goji, mangosteen,  that have been shown to have positive results with Alzheimers. It's all about your lifestyle!
