Interested them whether fill up those when viewing the TV or reading books. Information on age, sex, growth, weight, education level and concentration of beta and amyloid protein was considered.

In 15 years after primary analysis became clear: the people who were often complaining of drowsiness in the afternoon had dangerous proteinaceous deposits three times more often than the others in a brain. Scientists have counted that at these people the risk of development of an illness is 2,75 times higher.
