Research gives hope for brain disease cure

Good news for world’s 26 million Alzheimer’s sufferers as study shows vitamin B may slow disease.

At least 26 million people suffer the ravages of the mind-wasting disease known as Alzheimer’s – a degeneration of the brain for which there is currently no cure.

But now a new study is offering hope to those in the early stages.

Researchers at Oxford University in the UK have discovered that high doses of vitamin B appear to slow – if not stop – the advance of the disease.

Al Jazeera’s Tarek Bazley has the details.
