I am all for preventive medicine – taking steps to avoid illness before it happens. In that I include cleaning up and improving your diet, taking the proper supplements, exercising, being adequately hydrated, getting enough rest and paying attention to your self talk and beliefs.
However, in this article pharmaceutical companies want to to conduct trials in people who have risk factors for Alzheimer’s but do not yet have symptoms.
If you have had a loved one with this devastating disease, you may well consider this to be a good step. One of my uncles died from Alzheimer’s and I know how devastating it is to all concerned. However, I would not be willing to allow myself or any loved one to be a guinea pig for a drug trial. Most often these drugs have proven ineffective and there are always negative side effects. There is positive research showing some safe, natural, nutrient-based solutions, which I would make my first choice.
What do you think? Would you be willing to be part of a drug trial like this?
