    Untrue

    If you want the truth about Alzheimer's read Sandra Day O'connor's New York Times Op-Ed (10/27/2010). "It attacks rich and poor, white-collar and blue, and women and men, without regard to party" "Experience has taught us that we cannot avoid Alzheimer's disease by having regular medical checkups, by being involved in nourishing relationships or by going to the gym or filling in crossword puzzles. Ronald Reagan suffered the ravages of this disease for a decade despite the support of his loving family, the extraordinary stimulation of his work, his access to the best medical care and his high level of physical fitness." Anyone who buys this book is proving the old adage that a fool and his money are soon parted. Nobody knows what causes Alzheimer's and until we do we cannot prevent it. It is common sense to eat right, exercise, etc. But none of this will prevent Alzheimer's! There must be a very special place reserved for anyone trying to profit off of people's fears by peddling such lies.

    A great reference text!

    The book is well organized, introduced, and written.
    The multiple chapters are an advantage for reading, stopping, and reviewing.

    There are several good references to other publications.

    The wise reader has the opportunity to evaluate, skip, and question the many viewpoints.
    I will use it as a reference for a long time.

    Useful Information

    While I have not found a book or article that has 100 unique solutions or ideas to a problem, I did find a lot of helpful information in this book.

    It was easy and quick to read. Explained where the research came from and how nothing for alzheimer's is an absolute cure.

    Worth reading if you have someone who has or if you have a family history of Alzheimer's.

    Very easy to read

    For anyone in middle-age or older, Alzheimer's Disease is a major concern. This book shows easy ways to delay its onset, perhaps for years.

    If the recommendations in this book can be reduced to one sentence, it might be: Eat Right and Exercise Regularly. Eat lots of deep color berries, like black raspberries, cranberries, plums and strawberries; they are full of antioxidants. Apple juice can boost the brain's production of acetylcholine, just like the popular Alzheimer's drug Aricept. Large doses of caffeine, like several hundred mg per day, may help clean up your brain if you are showing signs of mental problems (people react differently to high doses of caffeine, so be aware of the side effects). If you have cholesterol problems, get it under control, now. Cinnamon gives a boost to malfunctioning insulin, allowing it to process sugar normally. Weak insulin can lead to diabetes, and can damage your brain cells. Did you know that coffee helps block cholesterol's bad effects on the brain, is anti-inflammatory and reduces the risk of depression, stroke and diabetes, which all promote dementia?

    Mental exercise is just as important as physical exercise. Fill up your brain with lots of interesting stuff, like education, marriage, language skills, etc. You can actually grow your brain with lots of physical, mental and social activities. If you can join a health club and work out regularly, do it. If going for a walk after dinner is more your speed, do it. Conscientious people are better able to cope with setbacks in life, and can better dodge chronic psychological distress, which boosts risks of dementia. If you are clinically depressed, get it treated, or you are more likely to develop Alzheimer's. Symptoms that look like Alzheimer's can easily be something else (and something easily treatable). Go to a geriatric neurologist and get the right diagnosis, now.

    The best way to prevent Alzheimer's is to reduce your personal risk factors, sooner rather than later. No one is expected to do everything in this book. Pick a dozen or so things that you can do every day, and stick with them. Anything that reduces the possibility of getting Alzheimer's, even by a little bit, is automatically a good thing. This book is very easy to read, and it is excellent.
