My dad who is in Stage II alzheimers. he left the city, where floride was added to the water supply, and moved to the country where there is a drilled well, no floride. He also wasn't nearly as attentive to brishing as is recommended, ie. he might have brushed one every two or three days, and as a result has very few teeth left in his mouth. Now, as for the aluminum, well, that's another matter. He ate cabbage boiled in an aluminum pot, also boiled everything else in aluminum cookware, most of his life. However, I am still convinced that he inherited the alzheimers from his mother who also had alzheimers. I am beginning to have memory problems, and confusion, but I attribute this to being locked up 24/7/365 with the only other person in my universe being my Dad (an alzheimers victim). It's like the brain waves are contagious. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how others respond.
