  1. This is an important thing..my great grandfather had Alzheimer's and my paternal grandmother has dementia so I know how hard it is to watch their minds fade into nothing..it's like their bodies are still here but their mind checked out a while ago..it's heartbreaking..but there are also causes that mainstream media will not talk about and those factors are just as important as the ones mentioned in this video..if you want to know what those other factors are and you're brave enough,you can do your own research about it..I'm doing what I can to prevent Alzheimer's and dementia from happening to me because I was brave enough to do my own research..PLEASE,for your own health take the information in this video but supplement it with more info that's out there..this is a horrible disease and we need to prevent it as much as possible..be well everyone ☺☺
