What is it?

By Graham Lin

Alzheimers is when your brain starts to "shut down" or break down. While this process is going along the human body starts to slowly fail and your brain loses memory until you die.

Their is currently no cure, but their are medicenes that can support your brain in handeling and especially remembering things. Medicenes such as Cognex were used to help to break down acetylcholine in your brain. Acetylcholine slows down your brain cells and makes you think slower. Later it was found that Cognex damaged your Liver so doctors stoppled using it. A current medication called psychotropic drugs can change your emotions and behavior in a positive way. This deasease is also unable to be prevented. Alzheimers is passed down from generation to generation. That means that this is genetic disease, and is carried around by the DNA of relatives.

Once a person is diognosed he/she loses control of their body because the disease deteriorats your brain. You usually get it when your are old of age.
