An altered state
This study from 2006 was hailed a breakthrough in Alzheimer’s study and treatment. It said that a buildup of amyloid protein in the brain was the probable cause of the disease. Since then billions have been spent on this idea. Now it appears that one of the researchers altered images used as the basis for their theory.

Could be another major hit on the image and confidence for the medical field and affiliated research. The entire Covid debacle did a lot of damage already. This may be another major blow.

It’s your brain they need to study. How does someone fall for every conspiracy theory out there? I’m sure they would find abnormalities that might help save others from your disease. Hoping you are an organ donor; if not please consider it. It may help others .
