I have Alzheimers desease and I have been involved in Alzheimers research for five years. So I'll not be doing any editing. AncientBrit (talk) 16:54, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, the article is so badly dated that gutting it may be the best forward. Because the task is so overwhelming, I haven't tried (other than tagging the article). If you identify specific passages that you believe should be wholly deleted, I will do so unless I find sources that disagree. But I don't have time or inclination to work on full update ...

The current amyloid theory has been called into question following a six-month-long investigation by - since it was published in July 2022 this article should long have had a note to that effect. (talk) 17:53, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, it should not have. Read Sylvain Lesné for a better accounting of the article by Charles Piller than whatever sources you are reading. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 17:55, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
