Protecting the Brain From Aging

EurekAlert discusses progress towards protecting the human brain from the degenerative effects of aging: the more we know, the more we can do to prevent conditions like Alzheimer's. It's worth recalling that even "normal aging" as discussed in the article is likely to be a collection of as yet unclassified diseases and conditions. After all, the horrific effects of Alzheimer's were regarded as a part of "normal aging" once upon a time. The effects of aging can be understood, fought and beaten, but only if we support and encourage the advance of medical science.
