Viewpoint: A new view of Alzheimer's disease
January 22, 2007
I know the jury is still out on this issue, but I firmly believe mercury exposure is to blame for Alzheimer's disease (AD). It's a subject I feel strongly about because my grandmother is a victim of this horrible condition. I can see firsthand the toll it takes on patients and their families. Even though my grandmother is still alive at 89 years old, she is often so disoriented and confused, it's almost as if she's not here.
