Common Virus Linked to Alzheimer's Disease, Study Suggests


The study found an association between patients' immune responses to CMV and signs of Alzheimer's disease.

However, more studies are still needed to understand how an active CMV infection might be related to this most common form of dementia, said study researcher Dr. Julie Schneider, of the Rush University Alzheimer's Disease Center in Chicago.

The study did not show a cause-and-effect link between CMV and Alzheimer's. It is possible that other stimulants of inflammation, including other viral infections, might also lead to the brain changes seen in the study, which could cause a decline in cognitive function leading to Alzheimer's disease.

Dr. Hulda Clark (deceased) found out years ago that almost all diseases, no matter what they are, have at their base, microscopic "bug" such as viruses and bacteria. Some of these are so tiny that they cannot be seen with the standard microscopes used in medical and medical research.

Dr. Clark was harassed and persecuted by the FDA when she started explaining the above to people, and treating them for, at the time, generally unknown "bugs." Read her book, "The Cure for All Disease."
