I notice that the Daily Mail has at least one article a week on something that may fend off Alzheimer's. Now I know that we all want a cure, or something that fends off the symptoms, or something that helps us avoid dementia in the first place. Am I alone in getting tired of seeing headlines for remote bits of research that - to me - seem totally unproven? Yet may give unjustified hope to people. This week it has been blackberries, and today, learning a second language. I know also that we want visibility for the whole area of dementia, but I am tired of people trying to be helpful and pointing out these articles. My reply is always "it is only the Daily Mail just filling space again."
