    Junk science – It works too well so lets create some hysteria and get it Black Labeled just like VIOXX!

    Do a real study on the drug’s direct effects and find out the scientific reason the drug acts the way it does and leave the statistical Mumbo Jumbo out of it…

    Woops, have been taking Omeprazole daily for at least 20 years continuously. 80 years old.

    These studies focus on a single variable and then look at dementia incidence. What is dementia? Essential waste proteins in the brain. What cleans dementia? A process initiated by changes in the body such as a slowing/cooling digestive tract which stimulates a pressure washing process in the ventricles of the brain. If the pressure washing process is not done well, proteins build up. What makes the pressure process not be done well? Well one as it relates to this article is the digestive tract cooling by a degree. This means eating before bed, taking meds that prolong digestion (antacid meds, ppihibs), sleep disorders, stress, alternative work schedules, and many other variables. Instead of focusing on a drug that indirectly contributes to dementia focus on the many factors that interrupt or negatively impact this pressure washing process.

    Seems like no matter what it is that you use to cure one problem they always say it could cause another…
    I take nexium every morning for acid reflux and will not discontinue using it and if it causes dementia well then at least if I have dementia I probably won’t know I have dementia. 😁

      I was just thinking exactly what you wrote. I could use a period of complete lack of awareness, especially at this point in my life.

    Big Pharma is a mess. Instead of being leaders in cures they just want to put a bandaid on everything. What ever happened to do no harm. It’s time to be real doctors with real solutions. This is why they are so afraid of doctors that use natural medicine and they really get results. And they use testing that is actually effective. I don’t trust them anymore.
