Alzheimer’s linked to swearing and bad parking #Alzheimers #linked #swearing #bad #parking Welcome to TmZ Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Memory loss is a prominent symptom of Alzheimer’s disease, but that’s only one of many signs of the disorder.
The disease, which affects 5.8 million people in the US, often presents as forgetfulness, irritability and trouble communicating.
Earlier this month, researchers said they’d uncovered another sign of the illness: imprudent altruism.
The new findings suggested that elderly people who were more willing to give away money to strangers are at a higher risk of developing the neurodegenerative disease.
“Trouble handling money is thought to be one of the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, and this finding supports that notion,” said Duke Han, lead study author and professor of neuropsychology, in a statement.
The study is the latest to shed light on the mysterious disease. Read on to learn more about Alzheimer’s difficult to discern symptoms:

Compared to younger generations, older people are more likely to be victimized by online phishing scams, which could be a sign of Alzheimer’s in some.
Researchers at both the University of Southern California and Bar-Ilan University University in Israel found a link between handing out money and the early signs of the disease.
For their study, they took 67 adults close to 70 years old and paired each of them with someone they had never met before; they were then given $10 and asked to split it between themselves.
