"Alzheimer's disease currently afflicts 5 million Americans; one American is diagnosed with Alzheimer's every 70 seconds, and right now the only cure is prevention. Can Alzheimer's really be prevented? What are the new research techniques being used to study Alzheimer's disease? And what do they show us about the possibilities for preventing or delaying its degenerative effects?
In his new book, The Alzheimer's Prevention Program, Dr. Gary Small looks at what Alzheimer's disease actually is and reviews the research on preventing its onset. Small challenges the widely held notion that Alzheimer's is not preventable and discusses a variety of ways to keep the brain healthy."
