Minimizing the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease .
Sound Bite
Alzheimer's disease and dementia—which can begin in the 30s—are on the increase, and may soon overwhelm our health-care systems. Yet individuals can do much to educate themselves and learn how to minimize their risks.

This book outlines the research findings on what people can do to delay or avoid Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

This heavily referenced volume contains a wealth of alternative medicine recommendations not available in the best-known books on Alzheimer’s.

A prudent diet, lifestyle modifications, nutritional supplements, exercise and activities to stimulate the brain are some of the best ways to prevent or delay Alzheimer’s disease. Use your brain or lose it! That’s all easy to say, but how scientific are these admonitions and how do we change our habits, anyway?

Vitamins, minerals and food supplements are discussed in relation to memory and other functions, as well as an overview of medications, the effects of wine, and the dangers of smoking.

The Appendices present helpful data to assist in decision-making regarding nursing homes, statistics for Alzheimer’s state by state, and a list of support organizations worldwide.

The present work is more comprehensive, better organized, and more reader friendly than 100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's, by Jean Carper, a gimmicky book that contains extraneous material in short, 2-page chapters but does not list its references to enable concerned readers to take their research further.
