Alzheimer's is preventable.
Along with Dr. Trempe from Harvard, I wrote a paper titled, "Prevent the Epidemic of Alzheimer's from Pre-Birth to Death."
You can access the full paper at the link below. I believe it's understandable by anyone - we present several straightforward concepts.
Here are some Alzheimer's Quick Facts:
Women are more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's (AD). https://www.alzheimers.net/8-12-15-why-is-alzheimers-more-likely-in-women/
The excess AD in women may be tied to hormones, genetics, and vascular diseases. See the link above.
Depression is a risk factor for future Alzheimer's. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12756140
Periodontal disease and other infections may contribute to AD development. https://www.j-alz.com/editors-blog/posts/alzheimers-disease-and-spirochetosis-causal-relationship
Insulin-resistance (diabetes or even pre-diabetes) is a risk factor for future Alzheimer's. https://www.apa.org/monitor/2013/02/alzheimers
Based on the risk factors for AD, this disease is both preventable and reversible - with prevention being the preferred solution.
For further information on early detection, prevention and Alzheimer's risk factors, consider listening to this interview on the show, "What Women must Know."
I do hope you listen to this interview. Be part of the solution!
Health is all about the little things - start with some of these simple suggestions - but be consistent and persistent.
