Ministers ‘failing to uphold a UN disability convention they do not understand’

I am not paid or induced in any way to mention any articles and I do not necessarily support any comments, language or the use of specific words.

I haven’t included any articles about cures, as I feel they are misleading. Apart from the current medications, all recent clinical trials seem to fail by stage 3.

I have also excluded the eat this, drink that, do this to reverse Dementia type of articles. We are all different, so again false hopes and impressions do not help.
