Yeah, AP's are another kettle of fish entirely, and I gather there's strong evidence of a link to diabetes and raised cholesterol.

As for AD's though, I don't doubt "Big Pharma" has tried to play down links to other life threatening conditions as you say. But I'd imagine it's on of those areas where it's pretty hard to prove cause and effect, like the "cannabis causes schiophrenia" debate.
