The right to the highest attainable standard of health is codified in numerous legally binding international and regional human rights treaties. The right, or other health-related rights, is also enshrined in over 100 constitutions worldwide.

As depression predisposes to Alzheimer’s disease,(verify with Pubmed) it is reasonable to suspect that antidepressants are capable of preventing or arresting the disorder. Excessive synthesis of prostaglandin E2 generates amyloid (verify with Pubmed). Such non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs as aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as antidepressants, inhibit prostaglandin E2 (verify with Pubmed). Suppression of prostaglandins, in preference to genomics and biotechnology, has corrupted medical progress.

Constantine Lyketsos, MD, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins University showed that Zoloft improves the quality of life for Alzheimer's patients with depression, reduces agitation, aggression and anxiety, and slows the functional decline. Zoloft did not improve impaired mental abilities such as thinking, remembering, and learning. One antidepressant does not speak for all. Antidepressants offer many advantages and few disadvantages in addressing Alzheimer’s, and beggars can’t be choosers Alzheimer’s was recently referred to as “the coming tsunami,” but you would not think so, given the lack of response of major Alzheimer organizations, when offered this resource.
