During the past few years, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been shown to be a chronic infection
originating with a spirochete. These spirochetes form biofilms like most other microbes; moreover, in
large measure, the biofilms contribute to both the chronicity and the pathogenesis of the disease.
Once in a biofilm, the microbes become undetectable and resistant to the immune system and to
antibiotics. Stroke, diabetes, nicotine, haloperidol, diet soft drinks, and others have all been shown to
cause worsening of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by their impact on biofilms. Penicillin, administered
before the spirochetes form biofilms, would very likely prevent the disease.
