Why don't we have a cure for Alzheimer's disease?

  Why don't we have a cure for Alzheimer's disease? As a researcher who studies Alzheimer’s disease and a neurologist who cares for people with Alzheimer’s, I share in the frustration, indeed anger, of people and families when I tell them that I have no cure to offer. Over the past year, scientists have tackled COVID-19, a previously unknown disease and within months developed effective new vaccines. Over that same time frame, the list of Alzheimer’s treatment failures got longer. Currently, the only approved drugs for Alzheimer’s merely alleviate some of the symptoms — partially and temporarily — but do not stop the disease from progressing.

Basic Grain Products' Internal control systems discovered the undeclared milk, and while only two lots are affected by the recall, if you have the caramel rice cakes in your pantry, you should not consume them. Throw them away or return them to Kroger or Stop&Shop, the notice says.

If someone with an allergy or sensitivity to milk unknowingly consumes the rice cakes, they could develop a serious or life-threatening reaction. "Milk allergy is an abnormal response by the body's immune system to milk and products containing milk," The Mayo Clinic says. Symptoms can start soon after consumption, and "range from mild to severe and can include wheezing, vomiting, hives and digestive problems."

The next morning, she got an email about arranging delivery. Only then did she remember what she'd done. Making such a big purchase with no forethought and then forgetting about it was completely out of character for Turner, then a critical care nurse in Greenville, South Carolina.
