We fear Alzheimer's as we fear no other disease for two reasons. It is the only one of the nation's ten most common causes of death for which there has been no effective treatment. And it is not only fatal: it robs its victims of their lives long before they are gone.
But Dr. Bredesen has turned the tables, showing that Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline can not only be prevented but, in many cases, reversed. Now, in this paradigm-shifting book, he brings hope, and the first good news, to Alzheimer's patients, with a new understanding of the disease and a new program they can put into effect themselves.
