Let's fight Alzheimer's, say Kohl and Obama

Senator Kohl's recent email update explains the new federal push to fight Alzheimer's disease through funding more research and help for families and caregivers. The question is are they really interested in a cure, or just more drugs and expensive medical therapies? If they are honest about wanting a cure (which would take money away from Big Pharma and Big Medicine) they will put dollars towards exploring environmental factors that could influence or precipitate this condition.

A growing number of American and international doctors and scientists warn that chronic exposure to pulsed radiofrequency radiation can be a factor in Alzheimer's. The question is will policy makers listen, or simply continue to support the big industries that benefit from care and treatment of this disease?
