ScienceDaily reports on a newly identified neurodegenerative disease that has in the past been misdiagnosed as "normal aging." This is of interest in light of recent suggestions that all the symptoms of "normal aging" are in fact due to undiagnosed and as yet unclassified medical conditions. This may or may not be the case, but it's worth remembering that Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative conditions were an unidentified part of "normal aging" not all that long ago.

If we insist that damage and degeneration are normal, then no funds will be allocated to research causes and cures. I think that we can do better than that.
