Defense against Alzheimer's Disease: A Rational Blueprint for Preventionby H. J. Roberts
Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease is an unprecedented contribution for both the general reader and health professional. H. J. Roberts, M.D., a credentialed physician, condenses a career devoted to careful observation and considerable personal research in addressing this self-imposed mandate. He clarifies vulnerability to Alzheimer's disease, warning clues to its evolution, and the probable mechanisms involved.
Dr. Roberts lists and concisely explains the most likely "risk factors" ... some never having been considered in this context. They are coupled with valid, albeit not guaranteed, preventive efforts before extensive irreversible brain damage during the 20-30 years that precede gross impairment of memory. These panoramic measures encompass nutrition, the avoidance or minimizing of exposures to neurotoxins and neurotoxic influences, and wise suggestions about living in contemporary society.
The uniqueness of this original "agonizing reappraisal" is reinforced by the absence of corporate or governmental research grants, thereby insuring both autonomy and objectivity. The author also minimizes "medicalese" so that it can be understood by interested readers.
