Can Sleep Prevent Alzheimer’s
Researchers of Boston University has finally found out how toxins are eliminated from the brain while you are asleep, which could further help prevent one of the common neurodegenerative disorders called Alzheimer’s.

I can think of several people I know personally, who got plenty of sleep and still got Alzheimer’s, and that’s just me. I know personal anecdotes don’t really matter, but this as an answer defies logic. Would that it was true....
