Alzheimer’s disease is the form of dementia and usually occur in the old age. In Alzheimer’s disease death of brain cells leads to memory loss. Modern science says AI² (amyloid beta) is causative agent of Alzheimer’s disease and also some infections, toxins and metabolic disorders. The cholinergic deficiency in this disease is responsible for most of the short term memory which leads to progressive loss of memory, deterioration of all intellectual functions, increases apathy, decreases… Expand
