Germs as the cause of Alzheimer’s disease

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sam Gandy and Diana Pisa are very smart people. Both hold doctorate degrees and both study neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease.  Both have made breakthrough discoveries centered on germs they have discovered in the brains and other tissues of deceased Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients.  As a backdrop to these discoveries, I have previously reported that I believe there exists a fungal cause of AD.

July 2018 – Dr. Gandy, July 2018 – Dr. Gandy, reporting on a study published in the journal Neuron, contends that two herpes viruses have been identified in RNA from brain tissue in AD corpses.  In doing further RNA tests on AD brains and non-AD brains, Gandy and his team discovered that AD brains had the 2 strains of herpes viruses at “levels up to twice as high.”  Their goal would be to develop new drugs that might arrest AD progression and potentially prevent AD if administered early enough.

July 2017-Dr. PisaJuly 2017-Dr. Pisa, and her team acknowledged that herpes virus had been considered at the cause of AD, but she presented two studies that denied the herpes virus link to Alzheimer’s Disease.  This team discovered bacteria and fungus in the tissues of AD patients and noted that these species can coexist in AD patient’s tissues.  They end their study by suggesting that AD may be a polymicrobial infectious disease.


What is my take on all of this?

I will always believe that neurotoxic fungal mycotoxins cause brain disorders because medical schools don’t teach this important information to our doctors. I’ll never forget an article I read in the journal Brain Research in 2017. “Finland,” the article stated, “has the highest death rate from dementia in the world and its environmental features can be instructive in understanding hidden causes of dementia.  The climate is both very cold and humid resulting in housing frequently harboring molds that are capable of producing a neurotoxic mycotoxin.”  If you couple that with the neurotoxic fungal mycotoxins called “antibiotics” and “alcohol,” you have a recipe for Alzheimer’s Disease and a host of other neurological and physiological diseases.
