    I'm so jazzed to read about this initial phase of researchers hot on the trail of this morbid killer and destroyer of good lives. I was particularly excited about the links on the page explaining the chemical changes in the brains of Alzheimer's victims:

    Thanks, JBeukema.

    I don't mean to put down the big pharm R&D establishment but the "findings" are hardly noteworthy. It's a drug company probably trying to get lucrative federal funding for a drug by making claims of "breakthru's" that are just theories and decades in the future.
