Default New Drug for Alzheimers is Too Weak, FDA Advisors

Resign over it's approval., Aduhelm is drug name. Very costly for the drug and all that goes with testing etc.

From the article on the Drug:

"This drug has generated all kinds of excitement because it is the first approved drug that does more than just relieve the symptoms of Alzheimer's. This drug actually affects an underlying disease process by reducing the amount of sticky amyloid plaque that builds up in the brain. The catch is that removing this plaque may not actually help patients avoid memory loss and thinking problems. One big study showed that it did. Another showed that it didn't."


On Grape Seed Extract and this Amyloid Plaque, this is where I have been putting my money for years.

Lot of good info here on Alzheimers even it's history. This doctor does mention Resveratrol which is from the Grape Seed Extract family.
