Predicting Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a big issue in the world that many people would like to solve. Wouldn’t you like to know if you could be affected by it later on in life? It’s a topic of controversy and everyone has their own view of whether or not they should know. But for the people who would like to know, there is a blood test that can tell you if you are more likely to get Alzheimer’s than others. According to researchers from the National Institute on Aging. “This year has seen the development of a few different types of blood tests that could potentially diagnose Alzheimer’s before symptoms appear.”  

Now you might be saying to yourself, why would I need to know that if there is no treatment? Well, this research required them to locate and figure out why, when, and what, causes Alzheimer’s, which is a step forward to finding a cure. Even if there is no cure now there are still treatments to help slow down the  process of the disease, and to help you prepare for it. Who knows, the cure could be right around the corner; it’s surprising what people can do with the advances in technology and knowledge in our world today.
