Here is a longitudinal study (2022) that found herpes virus were "linked with several neurologic and cognitive features, but not with Alzheimer's disease processes" "Having an infection was associated with longitudinal reductions in white matter volume (annual additional rate of change -0.34 cm3/year, P=0.035), notably in the temporal lobe."

— But no evidence of a relationship between herpes and Alzheimer's disease Here is a link to a write up about the research and a link to the study. https://www.medpagetoday.com/neurology/ ... Ql1-D5kqm8 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35985823/
"True prevention is only possible by first discovering the cause of a disease such as Alzheimer's."
