Scientists believe that there is no single clear cause of Alzheimer 's disease. They believe for most people, Alzheimer 's disease is caused by a mixture of genetic, lifestyle and environmental aspects that affect the brain over time. The risk of having Alzheimer 's seems to be somewhat higher if a first degree relative has the disease.

There is yet for a cure to be found for Alzheimer’s disease however the use of the drug Rivastigmine has been verified to help relieve the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase so that the neurotransmitter acetylcholine is not
The high level of aluminium in the body causes change in the hormonal function of parathyroid, bone cell activity and bone mineralization. Aluminium competes with calcium in bone which leads to enhanced calcium levels in blood commonly known as hypercalcemia which is reported to be a major cause of osteoporosis. On the other hand it is not clear till date that Alzheimer is caused due to aluminium, but many Alzheimer sufferers have been detected to have high deposition of aluminium in their brain
Patients experience less dementia, or cognition decline, than individuals with untreated brain illness. Depression, for example, is associated with an increased risk of subsequent dementia when untreated. Consider pharmacology augmenting ECT. As we age, medications metabolize differently, interact more, and can cause life threatening side effects. Even medication that a patient has taken safely for years can, one day out of the blue, cause dizziness and falls.

However, for the bottles, it will take time to destroy it. If we look refer to the United States, there have Mercury-Containing and Battery Management act 1996 are established .
