Absolute rubbish, copper has no more to do with it as Alluminium, dementia has been around since the birt of time, its not more prevelant now, just more well known

The fact is that dementia, and Alzheimer's in particular, is a lot more prevalent now. The question is why?

We know for sure that one reason is that the longer the average lifespan, the higher the percentage of dementia. And the good news is that we are living longer and longer.

We also know for sure that the less healthy the diet, and the less people exercise, the higher the percentage of dementia. Today, many societies have very unhealthy diets and increasingly sedentary lifestyles.

So there is definitely a cause-and-effect relationship behind the percentage rate of people who get dementia.

Is copper part of that picture? Healthy skepticism is warranted, but it is our job to keep our readers up-to-date on the available evidence.

Hope this helps.
