Measuring Your Sense Of Smell

The loss of smell has been associated with Alzheimer's, but how do you measure your smeller?

Well, at the University of Pennsylvania, researchers think they've found a way to do that by checking levels of a protein called tau. They say the more tau you have, the worse your sense of smell.

So, researchers are hopeful this could someday lead to a way to test for Alzheimer's disease in its earliest stages.
