comment What would be an appropriate word for a medicine that prevents Alzheimer's Disease?
@Mitch, you are correct that Alzheimer's disease is not preventable. My question was about what you would call a preventative medicine if one were to become available.

comment How to hyphenate “right mouse click”
I once read a story in a computer magazine about an irate user who wrote the word "click" on a monitor with a marker after a support person told her to right-click on sometime.
