Cognitive decline, such as with Alzheimer’s disease, is among the most-feared aspects of aging. Researchers tend to echo the sentiment that we have yet to understand its cause or how to treat this condition effectively. This informative and optimistic presentation reviews the statistics and the science, then deconstructs the evidence-based origins of the Alzheimer’s disease process. What’s revealed is how the coveted “road to remember” is within our grasp, and the considerations to help us understand how to resist that ominous decline.
Edward R Blonz, Ph.D., wears many hats; he works to help combat health misinformation for consumer protection agencies, writes books and a syndicated newspaper column, and is also a researcher studying the pathogenesis of cognitive decline. His unique twist on health, nutrition, and biochemistry provide fresh perspectives while helping demystify complex issues. (More on Ed at http://blonz.com/bio.htm.)
