  • God said he gave man 120 years so the brain should last and it isn’t. It is partly from environment, heavy metals, what states you live in. 3 of my aunts, 2 cousins have died and or in home for it, my mom is 89, didn’t live where they did and she doesn’t have it. A bit of memory loss, repeats things like we all do. Very heartbreaking for the families.
