...which was promptly stomped upon by people who keep up better than I.

Two people were kind enough to point out that my information was several
years out of date. I did some looking and sure enough, I blew it. While Al
hasn't been proven _not_ to contribute to Alzheimer's, the original study
that suggested it may be a cause was flawed, and invalid.

In short, there is no known connection between Al and Alzheimer's. Sorry
for the confusion folks!
