Our national charity, Alzheimer’s Research UK, have today released part 3 in their #ShareTheOrange story starring Samuel L. Jackson.
Dementia is not a natural part of ageing, it’s caused by physical diseases, most commonly Alzheimer’s. The damage to a brain with Alzheimer’s can leave it weighing 140g less than a healthy one.
That’s about the weight of an orange.
But this shows that Alzheimer’s is a physical disease. And through research, we know diseases can be slowed. They can be stopped.
Alzheimer’s Research UK believe research can change the future. But to help us all get there sooner, we must change the conversation about dementia.
Please, just Share The Orange.
