I came across a wee article the other day.
Apropos of nothing at all, it just struck me as typical of the mindless drivel that they love shovelling into the press these days.
Note the use of the word “could”. They don’t say it “causes”, but rather it “could help progress”. In other words it doesn’t cause anything. It may possibly make a pre existing situation slightly worse but that’s about it.
Copper could be a major environmental culprit in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, research suggests.
They don’t sound very sure of themselves, do they? And boy do they love that expression “research suggests”!
Scientists found strong evidence that copper helps to promote the changes in the brain underlying Alzheimer’s.
So they found evidence, not proof. And they still haven’t found the cause. Mind you – the sheeple will read this and go into a blind panic because they read somewhere that copper causes Alzheimer’s.
So why bother with this article? More important, why bother with this research? It is pointless. Copper is all around us, and most of us probably drink water that has travelled through copper pipes at some stage. They may just as well study the “evidence” that jet aircraft cause bovine tuberculosis. The fact that cattle that suffer from the disease have all at some time or other had a plane fly over them is pretty “strong evidence” using modern criteria?
Instead of faffing around with the nonsensical, why don’t they try and find something that helps Alzheimer’s?
Oh! Hold on…..
