Alzheimer’s Increasing In Millennials

The number of millennials with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease is surging, report finds

Between 2013 and 2017, early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s diagnoses increased by 83% among commercially insured Americans aged 30 to 44, according to a report released by the health care insurer. That age group includes the oldest millennials.

Overall, early-onset diagnoses increased by 200% among commercially insured Americans between ages 30 to 64. That included a 50% jump among those 45 to 54 and by 40% for those aged 55 to 64.

The average patient was diagnosed at age 49.

“The results of this report are concerning, especially the increase in early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease among younger people,” Dr. Richard Snyder, chief medical officer for Independence Blue Cross, said in a statement.

“…So much information right at our fingertips!
 
But it’s gotten out of control… We’re addicted, distracted, overloaded.
We have, as Jews, this incredible gift right in front of us — Shabbat — that is thousands of years old. It’s creating a temple in time. We really need to create sacred spaces…
But one needn’t be Jewish to observe an unplugged Shabbat.
It can work for anyone, from any background or belief. 
We are on information overload… We have to have a day where we’re not influenced by every single other thing.

An Electromagnetic Health Crisis

An Electromagnetic Health Crisis

If living beings have always been exposed to natural electromagnetic fields, and their bodies produce electric currents as well, why is there a growing concern about the human-made electromagnetic fields?
 
Human-made EMFs/EMR are more bioactive than natural non-ionizing EMFs/EMR”. As a result, there is a growing concern that the biologically active human-made electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) may be at the root of some mounting health concerns for humans…
