Researchers have worked diligently to find simple ways to identify differences in people with Alzheimer’s and those with “normal” age related memory reduction.  A team from the University of Alberta in Canada may have just done that with the use of a simple saliva test.  Presented at the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference last week, the saliva test has shown promise as a tool to determine those at higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s and in need for further testing.
