(Gizmag)   Still no cure for cancer, but perhaps you'll remain fully aware and cognizant as your aging body slowly and agonizingly destroys itself. Yay, science?   (gizmag.com ) divider line 13

I was going to make a sad comment on the state of my body, and then I saw this.

I'd rather be in pain with all my cognitive abilities than be constantly clueless, so yeah yay science.

SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE THIS TO PRATCHETT NOW.

Also, given that my grandad lived to be 102 and had the health that most people have in their 70's, and died not via slowly wasting but just dropping dead of a heart attack-

fark yes I'd want something to keep me... well.. me... right up to the end. Alzheimers scares me a shiat TON more than dying does, in part because of what it does to everyone *around* the sufferer...

That's great news! Now, if only they could try to find a treatment for Alzheimer's.

It's gonna be a long while from when (hopefully) I will need it, but I'm becoming a big proponent of physican assisted suicide. Watching my dad go through what he did at the end, really got me thinking about it. Death with Dignity, indeed.

I think the article is saying that mouse alzheimers is nothing like the human disease,  says plaque builds up between neural networks in mice leading to disruption of neural signals affecting learning and memory.  In humans our neurons just die.  So they found a drug that'll clean the plaque out of your brain,  yay?

What I got from this article is a firmer conviction that the predominant life form after humans will be superintelligent, immortal mice who will be immune to everything.
