Alzheimer's blood test promises detection years before symptoms develop

Amyloid beta deposits, or plaques, in the brain are the most commonly hypothesized causative agent behind Alzheimer's disease. A new breakthrough blood test, developed by an international team of scientists, can reportedly measure the concentration of these amyloid beta concentrations using just a tiny blood sample...
