The scientific world has been studying the causes of Alzheimer's disease for a long time.

This information was reported by Storinka, reports “URA-Inform”.  

Various assumptions have been made, but they have not brought us any closer to understanding where dementia begins. This did not make it possible to correctly and timely prescribe treatment, stopping the manifestations of the disease at an early stage.

An unexpected conclusion was made by Australian scientists from the Institute of Medical Innovation at Curtin University. They linked the occurrence of Alzheimer's disease with long-term stress.

In their findings, the researchers argue that it is stress that keeps the human neuroendocrine system in constant tension. It regulates digestion, immunity, mood and energy, and is also responsible for the production of the hormone cortisol, which is the body’s response to stressful situations.

However, with constant increased stress, a malfunction occurs in the system and cortisol begins to be produced in much larger quantities than is necessary. And then the body begins to block it in other ways, which cause the development of dementia.

In essence, the brain simply begins to erase memories from memory that can cause painful sensations.

Recall that it was previously reported that the organ on which life expectancy depends has been named: and this is not the heart and liver.
