The “quick facts” provided by the Alzheimer’s Association are pretty concerning: More than five million people in America are living with Alzheimer’s, and that number is projected to reach 16 million by the year 2050. As the sixth leading cause of death in our nation, it kills more Americans than prostate cancer and breast cancer combined. Someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds; will you be one of them?

With statistics like these, it’s no wonder that people want to do everything they can to reduce their odds. However, it’s also important to note that Alzheimer’s is only one of the potential causes of dementia. While many people use the terms interchangeably, Alzheimer’s is really only responsible for around 50 to 70 percent of dementia cases. The misleading terminology is obscuring one very dark fact about dementia: Many times, it’s being caused not by something scientists are still struggling to understand like Alzheimer’s but rather by things that are masquerading as tools for good health; vaccines and prescription drugs.

In fact, the Alzheimer’s Association that publicizes these statistics is subsidized by Big Pharma. It’s simply good business sense that they want people to believe that every memory-loss patient falls under the Alzheimer’s umbrella because then they can sell you drugs that purportedly address it. Their research has led them to an approach that pays dividends: promoting and destigmatizing what many think of as “mental illnesses,” making them seem unpreventable but manageable with drugs. Many people who work for the Alzheimer’s Association and similar organizations are well-meaning people who want to help and are often unaware of the connection to Big Pharma.


It’s no coincidence that dementia cases have been spiking during the same time that children and adults alike are being over-vaccinated (flu shot, anyone?) and the over-prescription of brain-altering drugs like antidepressants is prevalent.

A help guide based on a Harvard University report admits as much. According to the report, “medications are common culprits in mental decline.” As the body ages, the liver’s efficiency when it comes to metabolizing drugs declines, and the kidneys do not eliminate them as quickly as they once did. This causes the drugs to accumulate in the body, which means those who take multiple medications are particularly susceptible to this effect.

Included in the list of drugs published in the guide that cause dementia-like symptoms are antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, sedatives, corticosteroids, narcotics, antihistamines, cardiovascular drugs, and anticonvulsants. It’s a very broad range of drugs, and many elderly people take medications from one or more of those categories. In fact, you might want to go check your medicine cabinet right now.

A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine correlated the use of popular medications like Benadryl and other anticholinergic drugs with dementia onset. According to the researchers, patients who took these medications for three years or more had a 54 percent higher chance of going on to develop the disorder.

Vaccines are also responsible for causing symptoms mistaken for dementia. People in their 40s are increasingly being diagnosed with “dementia,” and experts believe that environmental factors must be responsible in these cases. Mercury-containing thimerosal was used widely in childhood vaccines until 2001 and remains in some vaccines, including flu shots, to this day. A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that exposure to mercury could produce many of the changes that are seen in Alzheimer’s patients, including impaired cognitive function and memory as well as confusion.

Researcher Richard Deth stated: “Mercury is clearly contributing to neurological problems, whose rate is increasing in parallel with rising levels of mercury. It seems that the two are tied together.”

Another common ingredient found in vaccines, aluminum, has been linked to dementia as well.

It’s a pretty smart way to keep the profit machine turning for Big Pharma: Convince people they need vaccines or drugs, and when those vaccines or drugs cause further side effects and illnesses, sell them even more drugs to counteract them. And the best part for them is that because mental decline is involved, it reduces the chances that people will wake up to what is really going on here.

  1. Awesome story! My mom is 89 and has been on the fentanyl patch for a few years now and i can see the mental decline. Sne has chronic arthritis and will not consider not taking it.
    The medications that our seniors take are very bad for cognitive decline. Another one is Lipitor which robs your memory and causes muscle soreness after years of use.
    I actually took her off if lipitor about 4 years ago and put got her taking coconut oil everyday and i saw a real change in her memory. If you are interested in knowing more on this subject get the book “Stop Alzhemers Now”. Its very educational and was an eye opener for me. The food and drug industries are killing us , all for financial gain. Education on the subject is key!

  2. My 87 yr old mother was put on the fentanyl patch when she was 85 . My mother said she did not like the way it made her feel she said she felt like her stomach was going to explode and she couldn’t breathe . My mother called the Dr that prescribed the fentanyl patch and told she was not going to take the fentanyl anymore. The Dr told her she didn’t have to take it anymore. My mother stopped using the patch immediately. The next week my mother started falling. Mom ended up in the hospital with pneumonia, blood clots and unable to walk. I tried to explain to any medical personnel that would listen about the fentanyl and mom abruptly taking herself off of it . No one would listen to me because my mother had given my sister power of attorney.
    My mother’s condition continued to worsen resulting in months of nursing homes and hospitals. All the while being pumped full of various pain killers including the fentanyl patch and Vicodin which was administered intavenously. My mother suffered with confusion, hallucinations, inability to walk. Mom could not walk, did not sleep, did not eat, and did not know me. All the while I continued to try and explain the fentanyl and the effect of abruptly taking herself off of it. To no avail. I also called the Dr who prescribed fentanyl for her but was again unable to talk because I didn’t have power of attorney.
    My sister , who had power of attorney, was ever so eager to have my mother diagnosed with dementia. My sister admitted my mother into an assisted living facility using the power of attorney and her claim that my mother had dementia. The Assisted Living facility never saw proof of power of attorney when admitting my mother and would not even give my mother information about the cost of the facility at anything else after repeated requests.
    I finally got to explain to the Director of the facility the circumstances of the previous months and my mother was allowed to sign herself out at which I moved her back to her own home.
    At this time going on three years from the start of the fentanyl prescription my mother is living in her own home, walking, plays her piano, pays her bills and has a lady come in once a week to assist her.
    I videoed my mother while she was in the hospital and have proof of the difference in my mom then and now. My mom at this time is off all but one prescription drug which is for allergies, and vitamins.
    I say all of this knowing what was really causing my mother , who is 87 at this time, to be referred to as having dementia. My mother I don’t think will ever recoup to her previous self before the fentanyl , but she is certainly a lot better off than she was.
    In closing, my sister’s power of attorney has been revoked. I apologize for the lengthy explanation but I have witnessed first hand the horrific effects on people especially the elderly being called demented when in reality the problems are from something much more sinister.

    Thank you.
