Why Are More Younger Adults Developing Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

In late February, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) released a disturbing report describing the growing number of younger American adults diagnosed with early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Analyzing the four-year period from 2013-2017, BCBS reported a 200% increase in diagnosed dementia and AD among commercially insured adults from ages 30 to 64. As of 2017, approximately 15% of the insured younger Americans who received one of the two diagnoses were in their thirties or early to mid-forties.

The BCBS results reinforce findings from previous studies. In 2014, UK researchers reported that the number of under-65 individuals developing dementia was “double what was previously thought.” The next year, researchers looking at twenty-year dementia trends in the U.S. and other Western nations reported that dementias were starting “a decade earlier than they used to.”

The downward creep of various types of dementia into younger age groups gives new meaning to the decades-old slogan popularized by the United Negro College Fund that “a mind is a terrible thing to waste.” With initial symptoms that may include “depression, behavioural change, neurological disorders, systemic disorders and mild cognitive impairment,” early-onset dementia can force individuals into early retirement and financial hardship—or worse. An Irish study published in 2019 found that people with young-onset dementia “most commonly die from complications of dementia” versus other illnesses, even though nearly nine in ten also have at least one comorbid disease. BCBS puts it this way: Younger adults living with dementia or AD “are living at just 63% of optimal health—leading to about 11 years of healthy life lost.”

Estimates suggest that while around 11% of young-onset AD cases (and perhaps 1% of Alzheimer’s cases overall) do have a genetic mutation that runs in families, the bulk of younger Alzheimer’s cases do not have a genetic explanation.
Not normal and (mostly) not genetic
The Mayo Clinic notes that while age is a risk factor, dementia is not “a normal part of aging.” This observation is all the more pertinent when considering the individuals who develop dementia in their prime working-age years. As with many other chronic conditions, researchers have tried to pin the blame for rising rates of dementia on genetics—largely without success. Estimates suggest that while around 11% of young-onset AD cases (and perhaps 1% of Alzheimer’s cases overall) do have a genetic mutation that runs in families, the bulk of younger Alzheimer’s cases do not have a genetic explanation.

Moreover, AD is only a small piece of the broader dementia puzzle in those afflicted at younger ages. Whereas the majority—well over half—of older adults (> 65 years) with dementia have AD, Alzheimer’s accounts for only a third of younger dementia cases. (Looked at a different way, just 5% to 6% of all Americans with AD are under age 65.) More frequent forms of dementia in those under 65 include frontotemporal dementia—a nasty condition that produces loss of empathy, disinhibition, apathy, overeating and memory loss—and vascular dementia, which is linked to rampant chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. Interestingly, a growing body of research actually conceptualizes AD as type 3 diabetes or “brain diabetes” because of “molecular and biochemical features that overlap” with diabetes types 1 and 2.

For some researchers, the strong link between neurodegenerative diseases and dementia points to environmental exposures rather than genetics as likely culprits.
If not genetics, then what?
A study published in late 2019 assessed nongenetic risk factors for two types of young-onset dementia, considering a range of risks related to demographics, lifestyle and medical history. The researchers found that nongenetic factors in combination conferred more risk than any single factor, with each additional exposure increasing the risk of midlife dementia by 28%. The authors concluded that some individuals with young-onset dementia “experience a lifetime of risk exposure starting from early in life.”

Still pushing the genetics theme, some researchers have suggested that childhood neurodegenerative conditions presumed to be genetic—such as mitochondrial disorders, enzyme-related disorders and abnormalities of the myelin sheath—sometimes crop up in delayed fashion and manifest as young-onset dementia in adulthood. Of note, other studies have linked abnormal myelin development to “psychopathology” in adolescents and young adults.

For some researchers, the strong link between neurodegenerative diseases and dementia points to environmental exposures rather than genetics as likely culprits. In a twenty-year study (1989-2010) of dementia trends in 55-74 year-old adults across 21 developed countries, the U.S. experienced the biggest increase (82%) in total neurological deaths—defined as “Alzheimer and other dementias” plus “nervous disease” deaths. The U.S. went from a ranking of 17th in 1989 to having the second highest rate of 55-74 year-old dementia by 2010. To explain their dramatic results in both the U.S. and other countries, the lead author pointed a finger at environmental factors:

The rate of increase in such a short time suggests a silent or even a “hidden” epidemic, in which environmental factors must play a major part, not just aging. . . . [T]he changes in human morbidity, including neurological disease is [sic] remarkable and points to environmental influences. [. . .] The environmental changes in the last 20 years have seen increases in the human environment of petro-chemicals—air transport, quadrupling of motor vehicles, insecticides and rises in background electro-magnetic-field, and so on.

Some investigators cite traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)—increasingly common in children and adolescents—as another important contributor to early-onset dementia. In a 2014 paper, Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT and lead author Wendy Morley coined the term “diminished brain resilience syndrome” to describe “a modern day neurological pathway of increased susceptibility to mild brain trauma, concussion, and downstream neurodegeneration.” The two placed the blame for the heightened vulnerability of young brains on multiple environmental and lifestyle factors, including exposure to glyphosate.

In a 2008 JAMA Neurology study of dementia occurring in individuals under age 45—whose average age of onset was 34.7 years—the researchers linked 21% of cases to autoimmune or inflammatory causes, including lupus, autoimmune encephalopathy and multiple sclerosis (MS). Cognitive symptoms, including dementia, are some of the oldest recognized signs of MS—a condition that involves demyelination—with full dementia present in roughly one in five MS patients.

… presents findings that are unequivocal in their confirmation of a role for aluminium in some if not all Alzheimer’s disease.
Let’s not forget aluminum
In the just-mentioned 2008 study in JAMA Neurology, 19% of dementia cases in younger patients were of “unknown etiology, despite exhaustive evaluation” that sometimes included brain biopsy. The researchers made no mention of the known neurotoxin aluminum as a potential contributor—a surprising omission given the 2001 publication of the book Aluminium and Alzheimer’s Disease: The Science that Describes the Link, edited by UK Professor Christopher Exley, one of the world’s foremost aluminum experts. For decades, Exley and colleagues have tried to shine a spotlight on the role of aluminum in Alzheimer’s disease in the face of massive industry pushback and denials.

The latest effort by Professor Exley and his group presents findings that are “unequivocal in their confirmation of a role for aluminium in some if not all Alzheimer’s disease.” The study found unprecedentedly high levels of aluminum in the brain tissue of persons who died with the type of AD associated with genetic mutations (familial AD). Exley speculates that these genetic predispositions may also predispose individuals to accumulate high levels of brain aluminum “at a much younger age.” In other work, Exley has suggested that aluminum may also act as a “catalyst” for earlier-onset AD in people “without concomitant predispositions, genetic or otherwise,” and he proposes viewing AD “as an acute response to chronic intoxication by aluminum.” Professor Exley has also reported on the extraordinarily high levels of aluminum found in autism brain tissue.

Electromagnetic field (EMF) safety advocates have been raising questions for years about the link between cell phones and dementia at younger ages …
Protecting children’s bodies—and minds
Many of the conditions and exposures correlated with early-onset dementia—diabetes, obesity, autoimmune illness, traumatic brain injury, glyphosate poisoning and aluminum intoxication via vaccines—are occurring at epidemic levels in our children. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are also a growing concern. The scientific literature already links occupational EMF exposure to early-onset dementia. EMF safety advocates have been raising questions for years about the link between cell phones and dementia at younger ages, particularly because of cell phones’ effects on blood-brain barrier permeability. Clearly, these questions have great significance for the developing brains of our cell-phone-enamored and wireless-saturated children.

Alzheimer’s disease alone is already America’s most expensive disease, costing more than either heart disease or cancer. If we do not turn the chronic disease epidemics around and diminish or eliminate children’s toxic exposures, chances are that the next study of early-onset dementia will present even more troubling results—and there will be fewer adults with the brain power to understand them.

“The impeachment hoax
was initiated because of
Trump’s determination
to fully expose
CROWDSTRIKEgate.
That radioactive scandal
perpetrated by CrowdStrike
and the DNC leadership
is so dangerous to the
Democrat Party they
desperately started the
impeachment inquiry.
Now Trump really wants
that epic fraud investigated
because his presidency
depends upon it.”
— Intelligence Analyst & Former U.S. Military Officer
State of the Nation

Truly, it doesn’t get anymore explosive than CROWDSTRIKEgate!

CONFIRMED: DNC paid the ‘Russian’ founder of CrowdStrike to hack its server so it could be blamed on Russia!
What, pray tell, could be more radioactive than the fact that CrowdStrike was specifically hired by the Democrat National Committee to plant fake evidence on the DNC servers. The cyber-perps deceitfully used Russian digital signatures in order to falsely blame Russia for the election hack that never even occurred … except that it did and it was actually conducted by CrowdStrike.

Wow … what a tangled web, indeed … and incredibly reckless scandal ! ! !

How did Deep State ever think they could get away with such a conspiratorial hoax?

Especially with President Trump using his Twitter account to expose the entire CIA-directed black operation?

“Fancy Bear”
____________________________________________________________________________
Why Crowdstrike’s Russian Hacking Story Fell Apart – Say Hello to Fancy Bear
____________________________________________________________________________
This is exactly why they named the CrowdStrike-implemented psyop “Fancy Bear”.

The real perps behind the non-existent Russian hack wanted the American people to believe that CrowdStrike was a Russian bear-killing cybersecurity firm, which they aren’t.

Let’s be clear, the single best way for Trump to completely exonerate himself of even the slightest appearance of ‘Russian collusion’ is to prove that the Democrats falsified the evidence in the first place, WHICH THEY DID.

Why else would the DNC continually refuse to hand over their severs to the FBI so that the necessary forensic analysis could be conducted?!?!

Why else would the CEO of CrowdStrike — Dmitri Alperovitch — the “Russian-born American computer security industry executive … and co-founder and chief technology officer of CrowdStrike” name his bogus hacker-hunting operation “Fancy Bear” except to implicate the Kremlin for a hack that CrowdStrike pulled off?

CROWDSTRIKEgate
Yes, the back story to this unparalleled Democrat scandal is long and complicated, convoluted and full of intrigue. The following exposé breaks it all down in a way that every voter ought to understand before November 3, 2020.
______________________________________________________________________________
DNC Russian Hackers Found!
______________________________________________________________________________
Let’s face it: the Democrats will do anything to overturn the 2016 election result. These serial traitors to the Republic are so overwhelmed by Trump derangement syndrome that they will use any means required to take down Trump.

Well, CROWDSTRIKEgate shows just how far these hopelessly crazy communists will go.

When even a casual observer takes a closer look at all the evidence — scientific, circumstantial and anecdotal — it’s clear that the Democrats contrived an extraordinarily absurd and fictitious story to launch this scandal. In other words, “Fancy Bear” is really “Fanciful Bear”.

Whereas Dimity Alperovitch is really Russian by birth and ancestry, he was employed by the C.I.A and NSA to carry out espionage and counterespionage operations similar to their Russian hack op. And, here’s the indisputable timeline that proves it:
Fancy Frauds, Bogus Bears & Malware Mimicry?

IMPEACHMENTgate
Which brings us to the true reasons behind IMPEACHMENTgate. See IMPEACHMENTgate: The Scandal Is Much Worse & Plot Much Thicker Than Anyone Knows

The Democrats know that Trump is not only on to them, he’s on a mission to expose the entire treasonous scandal.

What that really means is that it’s all-out war between Team Trump and Deep State.

See:
Deep State Attempts Yet Another Coup in Broad Daylight, Evidence Proves Treason and a Complex Criminal Conspiracy

This is it folks. The final battle in American politics is being played out between now and Election Day 2020.

What’s at stake is EVERYTHING … for both sides of the political aisle. It’s a winner take all proposition.

Try THIS on Your Car and You’ll Never Need to Wax it Again! (See Video)
That’s why the Democrats concocted out of thin air the patently false allegations that were used to trigger the impeachment inquiry.

That’s why the fake UKRAINEgate was immediately blown up by the CIA’s Mockingbird Media and has not relented despite the lack of any evidence whatsoever. As follows:

UKRAINEgate: CIA black op, Deep State psyop, Democrat coup, MSM distraction, Israeli espionage, Trump sting, or all 6?

Not only that, but seditious co-conspirators Pelosi and Schiff have even refused to present the so-called CIA ‘whistleblower’ whose ridiculous report was obviously fabricated to trigger the impeachment process.

See:
SOFT COUP IN PROGRESS: Deep State Democrats Staged Fake ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint to Orchestrate Impeachment Hoax
________________________________________________________________________________

KEY POINT: As always, there’s a much deeper and broader back story to CROWDSTRIKEgate. This particular video accurately connects so many dots it boggles the mind:
Super-sleuth drops more radioactive intel in 22 minutes than the entire Alt Media does in a month!

Take a close look at this CrowdStrike piece taken from their website. Notice the heavy anti-Russian meming as well as the crucial dates. Everything points to a joint CIA-Madison Ave venture to further smear Russia.

Conclusion
Both Deep State and the entire Democrat Party are in extreme desperation mode.

Yes, they are facing the multifarious consequences associated with:
UKRAINEgate
BIDENgate
IMPEACHMENTgate
WHISTLEBLOWERgate,
but it’s really
CROWDSTRIKEgate
that has the highly explosive potential to destroy the thoroughly corrupt and criminal Democrat Party forever.

The stark reality is that, once the CrowdStrike crime wave is disclosed to the American people, the Democrats are history—FOR REAL!

This is precisely why Deep State has put the craziest of all the crazies — Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, Newsom, DeBlasio, etc. in charge of their insane asylum at this pivotal point during their historic crash and burn. These bad actors (very bad by the looks of Shifty Schiff in every interview) were specifically chosen because of how profoundly compromised each of them is.

Try This Egyptian Copper Secret! You’ll Never Believe What It Does Until You See the Blood Video!
Just how compromised?

This compromised:
PEDOGATE: Pandora’s Box Has Been Opened for Deep State and the C.I.A.

Let’s also take a much closer look at Nasty Nancy’s well-hidden history here: COUP-IN-PROGRESS: Pelosi, the Mafia and the Black Nobility.

Bottom Line: This rapidly intensifying 3rd Millennium “War of the Titans” is gonna get hot—hotter, in fact, than either the Civil War or American Revolution.

Therefore, the best thing the Patriot Movement can do is to disseminate this incriminating information so that the body politic is totally saturated with it. The more folks who are informed, the greater the likelihood that the collective consciousness will expand sufficiently to prevent a national cataclysm. Wide circulation of this critical material can de-escalate this decisive conflict as much as anything.

A LOT of prayer for the protection and focused intention for the continuity of the American Republic would greatly help as well.

Toxic 9/11 dust & smoke linked to nearly 10,000 cancer cases in New York

Toxic 9/11 dust & smoke linked to nearly 10,000 cancer cases in New York


RT
August 13, 2018

Almost 10,000 people have a cancer diagnosis that is somehow linked to breathing in hazardous particles following the September 11 Twin Tower terrorist attack in New York City, the Post has learned.

Inhaling particles from the leaked jet fuel, asbestos, cement dust and glass shards following the destruction of the World Trade Center has led to cancer proliferation among at least 9,795 first responders and other New Yorkers, the federal World Trade Center Health Program revealed to the New York Post.

The numbers continue to grow exponentially ever since the program at Mount Sinai Hospital kicked off in 2013. In 2015 the number of 9/11 cancer-linked patients stood at 3,204 while the next year it jumped to 8,188.

“We get these referrals 15 to 20 times a week,” said Dr. Michael Crane, medical director of the WTC Health Program, noting that 17 years following the tragedy older people tend to turn for medical help more often. “In an aging population, you’re going to see a rising cancer rate, no matter what.”

Since the tragedy, more than 1,700 affected persons have died, including 420 of those stricken with cancer, officials told the publication. First responders tend to suffer from thyroid cancer and skin melanoma and also face a higher risk of bladder cancer. The rest of New Yorkers exposed to toxic dust exhibit higher-than-normal rates of breast cancer and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Leukemia and other blood-cell disorders have also been noted to be on the rise, Crane said.

Image of Pentagon alleged attack

Amazingly, the Bush Family had more to gain than anyone else, especially since little boy Bush was president and daddy Bush is a globalist with the New World Order regime.

The military, FBI, CIA, Secret Service all told to stand down, then when Bush is informed of the attack while with the kids in school in Florida, next thing Bush said to the public was a lie, he said that he had seen the second plane hit. Proven to be a lie.
Amazingly, downstairs in the basements of the trade center buildings, all of the stored gold was already gone. Who had access to those vaults? the Bushes.

Washington Post, Feb 10, 2016 (emphasis added): Five years after nuclear meltdown, no one knows what to do with Fukushima… one huge question remains: What is to be done with all the radioactive material?… Tepco has built a 1,500-yard-long “ice wall” around the four reactor buildings… however, Japan’s nuclear watchdog blocked the plan, saying the risk of leakage was still too high… [M]ost problematically, there’s the nuclear fuel from the plant itself… “The biggest challenge is going to be the removal of the nuclear fuel debris,” [Akira Ono, Tepco’s Fukushima Daiichi superintendent] said. “We don’t even know what state the debris is in at the moment.”… one of the options the government is considering is building a nuclear waste dump under the seabed, about eight miles off the Fukushima coast… Many groups… staunchly oppose the idea of burying the radioactive material at sea in such a seismically active area. “At some point it would leak and affect the environment,” said Hideyuki Ban, co-director of the Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center.

Japan Times, Feb 20, 2016: NRA commissioner suggests plan to remove all fuel debris at Fukushima plant may not be best option — A Nuclear Regulation Authority commissioner has suggested that removing all fuel debris from reactors at the meltdown-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant may not be the best option. “I wonder if the situation would be desired that work is still underway to extract fuel debris 70 or 80 years after” the nuclear disaster, NRA Commissioner Toyoshi Fuketa told reporters Friday. “There are a variety of options, including removing as much fuel debris as possible and solidifying the rest,” he added… Fuketa said that unlike the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, it is “not realistic” to construct concrete buildings to cover reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 plant because the situation is different. The commissioner also questioned whether construction of an underground ice wall around the reactor buildings to prevent radioactive water buildup will prove effective.

Are You In Denial About 911 Being An Inside Job? Watch For Truth!

New 9/11 Video Ends Debate! WTC7 Sound Evidence For Explosions Should Put Final Stake In New World Order’s Heart!

Monday, September 22, 2014 5:35

(Before It’s News)

This video just released by ae911truth should once and for all end the debate over whether or not the US government lied to the American people on 9/11 and should be the final stake in the heart of a government body that is unfit to lead the American people, much less the entire world via their ‘New World Order’.

Hearing testimony directly from government officials that clearly contradicts the reality we are shown in this brand new video, the only thing left for the American people is the widespread lockup of ALL the criminals within the now defunct US government and those who assisted them around the world in pulling off this destruction and cover-up.
