Attention Researchers:

January 18, 2010

PLEASE stop promoting the results of animal studies as if they have immediate application to humans!  I know that you are trying to increase your research funding but it is irresponsible.

Could eye exams be useful in diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease many years before the onset of symptoms? MAYBE.  The studies have only been done in mice.  That’s it.  Human trials are planned but have not started.

I don’t think that I would even want to know if I am going to develop Alzheimer’s when I’m 60.  There’s no way to stop it.
