What is Alzheimer’s disease?
Alzheimer’s (AHLZ-high-merz) disease is a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person’s memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. As Alzheimer’s progresses, individuals may also experience changes in personality and behavior, such as anxiety, suspiciousness or agitation, as well as delusions or hallucinations.
The brain is perhaps the most awesome and complex example of divine engineering. In performance and ingenuity, it surpasses even the most powerful computer devised by mankind. Weighing between 1.3-1.4 kg. and containing some 100 billion neurons or nerve cells, it controls and determines who we are, what we do and how we do it.
