The medical establishment just LOVES to blame desperate patients for their problems.
They’ll claim it’s your own “bad choices” that lead to just about any chronic condition under the sun.
But now we KNOW the truth when it comes to at least one of today’s most frightening diseases.
It’s NOT your fault that you’re having memory issues.
And it certainly isn’t YOUR “bad choices” that could lead to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis in your future.
In fact, in many cases, it’s just the opposite. It’s mainstream medicine that landed you in this memory mess.
New research has exposed the ugly truth about this cause of this brain disorder.
What researchers uncovered could turn out to be one of the biggest triggers of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease we’ve ever seen.
And there’s a good chance it’s sitting in your own medicine cabinet RIGHT NOW – placed there at the urging of your own doctor.
But don’t blame him, he likely didn’t know any better. He’s been hoodwinked too.
Alzheimer’s risk skyrockets by 50%
The truth is, you can do everything “right” as far as the mainstream’s concerned.
You could be…
- eating “right”
- maintaining a healthy weight
- getting regular exercise
…and even have NO genetic risk factors, but STILL end up with Alzheimer’s!
Now, the new study shows WHY.
It turns out the very drugs your doc will prescribe at the drop of a hat… meds that supposedly help you with dozens of today’s most common chronic conditions… can lead directly to the devastating disease.
The new study confirms this entire category of medication – which includes some of America’s best-selling drugs – can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s by up to 50 percent if taken regularly.
They’re called anticholinergic drugs, but the name’s a little deceptive.
That’s NOT how they’re sold… and NOT what it says on the label.
The drug industry is doing its level best to help keep it that way, ensuring you can’t figure out what’s what when it comes to these drugs.
But trust me when I tell you they’re EVERYWHERE.
One is the antihistamine diphenhydramine. You probably know it better as Benadryl.
But here’s the thing, diphenhydramine is also found in dozens of other drugs, including “PM” versions of popular painkillers and certain over-the-counter sleep drugs.
Spot the dicey drugs driving up YOUR risk
Other common anticholinergic drugs include meds for…
- overactive bladder
- Parkinson’s disease
- gastrointestinal problems
- motion sickness
Many of these are ongoing conditions. The kinds of problems that are never really “cured” but only “managed” with drugs.
In other words, you end up taking the drugs… every day… with no end in sight.
And THAT, as the new study shows, is precisely how the risk adds up fast and leads directly to Alzheimer’s.
So… how do you spot them? Google “anticholinergic drugs” for a COMPLETE list that you can use to compare to everything in your medicine cabinet
And if you’re on any of them, you may be at a significantly higher risk for Alzheimer’s. So march into your doctor’s office and DEMAND to know what your other options are.
