The recent revelations about the 2006 Nature paper potential fraud and your discussion about myopia got me thinking again about alzheimer's
I work with people with dual diagnosis of various dementias and various mental illness.
I have thought about this condition being related to the way we us our brains and less about it having an external cause for several years.
The Nature paper controversy makes me less confident that "the science" is on the right path and the revelation, for me, that myopia and other conditions are probably caused by lack of proper use of the organ during development leads me to wonder if alzheimer's and other non-organic dementias may not have a similar etiology.
