My grandmother died of Alzheimers in 2009. But I still enjoy this style of humor. When it comes to humor about various diseases and tragic events we should be allowed to make jokes about them, as long as we aren't laughing at the fact the people died or laughing at the families that lost loved ones. For example, above is a good example of what should be acceptable. Here is and example of a bad joke: "Oh boohoo my dad died in the holocaust boohoo, quit cryin' you stupid pussy." That is not a joke, that is being a dick.

alzheimers is almost certainly caused by a buildup (or rather the lack of removal) of the amyloid-beta protein, a natural by-product of neural activity that, if left unchecked, will accumulate in the parenchyma/inner brain tissue
--this is most likely due to a reduction in the LRP1 transporter protein, which binds to amyloid-beta and takes it across the brain-blood barrier (BBB) to be exported as waste
--the reduction of LRP1 is most likely caused by high amounts of oxidative stress that act on the mature LRP1 protein
--one of the most probable and most significant causes of this oxidation is due to the presence of copper ions (Cu2+) in the brain
--we ingest free copper ions naturally (check your city's local FDA amounts of acceptable copper in drinking water) and, as they are not particularly good at crossing the BBB, they accumulate over time in the capillaries of the brain and eventually diffuse over the BBBarrier and into the parenchyma, where they oxidize the LRP1 and allow amyloid-beta to aggregate
--more importantly, the cause of alzheimers is caused by a lack of Cu ion removal, for which there are few options - one such would copper-chelators such as the PBT2 (modified 8-hydroxyquinoline analogue) that has already shown positive results in early testing
--since there is no real cure/treatment, however, the best home remedy that works so far are powerful antioxidants that tend to directly affect the brain (i.e. drink lots of apple juice early in life to help prevent/lessen the effects of alzheimers)

despite what you think, we're actually coming along pretty well in alzheimers research

right - i tried to be sure i used terms like "almost certainly", "most likely", and "most probable" because as with all things there are probably many many intertwining causes

and it's also more than likely that that particular article catered all data to look like nothing else was the cause

How much money is donated to breast cancer compared to other kinds of cancer? Why aren't we seeing little blue balls and ribbons for 'testicular cancer awareness - support the balls'. Is breast cancer just way more common, and therefore need more funding, or just because.. boobs?

Perhaps one should give credit to Boston Legal, rather than using such a clever line and say, "Its mine!".

I may be wrong though. Not really.

Wait... more money is being spent on things that people buy than for something that mostly the trillions-in-debt governments have to finance while "small government" advocates are breathing down their necks about oh-so-high taxes?

Well, that is a focking surprise, right?

Sometimes I wonder why people even buy things like boob jobs and not put it to good use. But then I remember, wait Boobs rock. So i stop wondering.

660 trillion is spent on the US military every year, that's more spent in the entire history of NASA.

I see all this **** about Alzheimers, (and yes it is important) but correct if I am wrong, isn't the way passing down genes works is that it isn't physical but is from genes in your body.

isn't that the dream,
