DWQA QuestionsCategory: DisinformationIs the organization on the Internet accurate and reliable in what they say about the industrial byproduct, AIF3, being the true cause of Alzheimer’s and that government scientists have secretly discovered a cure that is being kept from the American people?

There is a mix of truth, half-truths, and misinformation. It is well-intentioned, but it has an agenda of its own that is self-serving. The association of the huge increase in Alzheimer’s, and the juxtaposition of defense work, and contamination of the environment with byproducts, such as AIF3, are coincidental and not a causal relationship. We have told you the true reason for dementia. They are not correct when they state that Alzheimer’s did not exist prior to the 1940s nor are they correct in assigning blame to this toxin. It is true that this substance is deleterious, so the idea of protecting people from exposure is not faulty, it is a worthwhile goal and so is removing its presence if feasible in a straightforward fashion. But the claims for cures of dementia are exaggerated. It can exacerbate symptoms that are ongoing and that is, again, not the same thing as curing the disorder by eliminating this material or substance as the causal agent. Like other things that can degrade cognitive function, it is a liability, but its removal is not the key to overcoming the problem.
