The researchers suggest that perhaps Alzheimer's disease has an infectious nature, and deal with it with drugs that kill the fungus. About it writes The Daily Mail. Scientists have discovered metabolic products and traces of fungi in the brain of patients with Alzheimer's disease. In healthy individuals at autopsy the fungus in the brain is not typically defined.
We will note, earlier physicians were able to detect in the substance of the brain in Alzheimer's disease the genetic material of bacteria and viruses. One theory is that Alzheimer's can cause herpes viruses and pneumonia. However, unambiguous versions of the origin of the disease still does not exist.
Not all scientists support the theory of infectious disease occurrence. High likelihood that fungi, bacteria and viruses in the brain is the result of a weakened immune system.
