TheVoiceOfJoyce Fascinating, Alzheimer’s may be caused by the Herpes virus infecting us. A study out of Oxford, Great Britain will culminate in 2024 with more definitive results. If Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), can cause Alzheimers, there’s a simple remedy; the Shingrex Vaccine. The Vaccine is a two shot regimen, administered for free in the US, up to a maximum of 4 months apart. Some bacteria may be causal as well and we know some who have gotten Covid are prone to dementia. Amyloids are necessary to protect our brain from inflammation. Too many plaques, may be a function of old age and/ or a poorly functioning immune system. It appears people who get herpes and are treated with an antiviral are 9 x’s less likely to get Alzheimer’s. #ScienceUpFront

evidence pointed towards herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) – a pathogen found in 70% of the UK population, and the cause of oral herpes – as a prominent suspect. Studies in the UK, France and Scandinavia suggested that people who had been infected with herpes were more likely to get Alzheimer’s. When Prof Ruth Itzhaki from Oxford University’s Institute of Population Ageing – who has done more than any other scientist to advance the HSV-1 theory of Alzheimer’s – examined postmortem brain samples from patients, she found greater amounts of the virus’s DNA than in people who had not died of the disease.
