Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease - reasons for it
7 Dec 06
I guess there can be many reasons everyone is different, when my mother was going through it I was told the brain is like a muscle and like any other muscle if you don't use it you lose it....but there can be other reasons too...It might be a particular gene. I think they are close to solving this problem, lets hope so.
