Why sense of SMELL is the biggest tell-tale factor for Alzheimer's - and could be spotted 10 YEARS before memory loss symptoms

  • Growing swell of research suggests poor smell sense is the first symptom
  • But current test methods are limited, do not account for variation in senses
  • A new 4-point test has fine-tuned smell exams to check for Alzheimer's
  • Using it, researchers were correctly able to identify patients with higher Alzheimer's risk purely based on their sense of smell
