Scientists at UCLA are developing a simple blood test that could be used to confirm the presence of beta amyloid proteins in the brain, which is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. Current testing methods for beta amyloid involve an invasive procedure that carries the risk of nerve damage while another technique exposes subjects to radiation. 

Poll Question:
If available, would you take a beta-amyloid blood test for diagnosing Alzheimer’s even in the absence of any symptoms?
