So, I seem to recall that smoking has a protective effect against Alzheimer’s. Of course, I can’t recall where I saw that (Ahahahahaha). Also, that it’s not just that smokers die before they live long enough to get Alzheimer’s.
But clearly telling every Granny to start smoking isn’t going to fly as a treatment.
Except, vaping. So, nicotine intake – which I guess is the protective thing? – without all the tars, sounds like a plan.
At which point, don’t we have something of a problem here? For I cannot imagine any ethics committee being willing to allow such research. Even the suggestion would have pearls clutched.
Which is, perhaps, a problem in trying to actually find out, no?
