Are Experts Who Say Dementia Cannot Be Cured Fools Or Liars?

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The words ‘Alzheimer’s’ and ‘dementia’ are frequently used as if they were synonymous.

They are not.

Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia are NOT the same thing.

People who are profiting from the growth in the incidence of Alzheimer’s (this includes drug companies and those charities which have close links with drug companies) want you to believe that the two are the same.

If everyone who is demented is assumed to be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease then the profits for drug companies flogging medicines for the ‘treatment’ of Alzheimer’s patients will soar.

And drug companies and charities will get even richer.

GPs in the UK are willing participants in this fraud because (for reasons which are quite incomprehensible) the Government gives them money every time they diagnose Alzheimer’s disease.

The truth is that ‘dementia’ is a word like ‘cancer’ and ‘infection’.

There are many causes of cancer.

There are many causes of infection.

And there are many causes of dementia: some of which are curable.

The best guess is that in the UK there are around 80,000 patients who have been diagnosed as suffering from incurable Alzheimer’s disease but who are suffering from CURABLE causes of dementia – most notably the often overlooked normal pressure hydrocephalus.

Around the world there are probably 5,000,000 patients who are alleged to have incurable Alzheimer’s disease but who are curable.

That’s a scandal.

No one in the medical profession or the media cares.

That’s another scandal.
