A lot of people still believe that one.  I've tried to convince them
otherwise, citing the expertise of my wife, the dementia specialist.
(The truth is that brains full of plaque have elevated levels of
*several* metals, and it's correlation, not causation.  The plaques
collect metal.)  The general response is usually along the lines of
"Well, maybe... but why take chances?"
