Could the key to conquering Alzheimer’s come through drugs that help the brain more efficiently cleanse itself? Researchers have recently discovered a new waste disposal system that they’ve named the glymphatic system. This system removes waste from the brain. Before now, waste removal in the rest
of the body was well understood, but the brain remained a mystery. It’s believed that this self-cleaning mechanism may be a new route to explore in the quest to prevent or cure Alzheimer’s.
