Alzheimer's Disease is a progressive and debilitating neurological disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. As a form of dementia, Alzheimer's gradually impairs cognitive function, memory, and the ability to carry out everyday activities. It is characterized by the accumulation of abnormal proteins in the brain. Amyloid plaques, composed of beta-amyloid protein, and neurofibrillary tangles, formed by tau protein, disrupt communication between brain cells, leading to their eventual death.
Causes and Risk Factors:
While the exact cause of Alzheimer's remains unknown, a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors is believed to contribute to its development. Advanced age is the most significant risk factor, although genetic mutations, family history, and certain lifestyle choices may increase susceptibility.
