In brief: Alzheimer's Disease

I am sorry that i did not consider your question as part of a cultural body of beliefs, but in fact we have not figured out what causes alzheimer's disease, besides certain genetic predisposition, age and particular lesions in the brain.
Masturbation is not a cause of any type of dementia, although there are some individuals who develop an impulse control disorder, to masturbate compulsively.
