Suddenly the nursing wife also gets sick
The Guardian newspaper is talking about a man who suddenly developed dementia. His wife took care of him – and within a very short time she also suffered inexplicable memory lapses. In addition, hallucinations and muscle wasting occurred shortly thereafter.
Or a woman in her thirties who suddenly became speechless. There’s a frightening similarity here, too: the nurse who was ten years her junior who took care of her developed similar symptoms shortly thereafter.
Is neurotoxin to blame?

He suspects that something is being hidden. Are environmental factors responsible for the disease? For example, a neurotoxin used in crayfish farming.
