Excerpts-
  • Introduction: Preventing Alzheimer's Disease with Nutrition

    If you've picked up this book, it's probably because you've witnessed the ravages of Alzheimer's disease on someone you love--perhaps your mother or father, or even your sister or brother--and you fear the day when you might find yourself in the same position.
    You're not alone. Alzheimer's ranks among the greatest health-care crises of the twenty-first century, and the numbers become even more dire with every passing year. According to the Alzheimer's Association, there are currently 5.4 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in the United States alone and up to 27 million affected people worldwide. In the States, they're nurtured by 14.9 million unpaid caregivers. According to the Alzheimer's Association, these nearly 15 million Alzheimer 's and dementia caregivers provide 17 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $202 billion annually. Because of the toll this takes on their own health, these caregivers had $7.9 billion in additional health-care costs in 2010. Many of these caregivers are simultaneously parenting healthy young family members, a distinction that's earned them the unenviable label of the "sandwich" generation. As they struggle to care for both younger and older loved ones, they often fail to take care of their own health in the process--a perfectly understandable, but potentially hazardous, oversight. As a result, many of them suffer from higher rates of health problems, particularly depression.
    With the rapidly aging baby boomer population, Alzheimer's disease--currently the sixth leading cause of death in the United States--will continue to affect more and more of us. Some estimate that one in eight baby boomers could develop Alzheimer's. In the first six years of this century, while deaths from stroke, prostate cancer, breast cancer, heart disease, and HIV fell, Alzheimer's disease deaths increased by a shocking 66 percent. Approximately one in every ten Americans over the age of sixty-five now suffers from Alzheimer's, and every year, an estimated 100,000 people die from the disease.
    Alzheimer's affects so many of us: we either have a loved one who suffers from it, or know someone whose life has been drastically altered by caring for a relative or friend with the disease. The total cost of caring for Alzheimer's patients in 2011 was a staggering $183 billion, an $11 billion increase over the preceding year. This figure will continue to rise if we don't take immediate steps to protect the long-term health of our brains.
    There is, of course, no known cure for Alzheimer's disease to date. Once a patient has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's (and this seldom happens before the disease has progressed far beyond the mildest stages), doctors can do little to stop the devastation. Treatment options are limited at this point, and while medications can improve symptoms, they have no real effect on the disease itself.
    But the news isn't all grim. I'm here to tell you that there are easy, concrete steps every single one of us can take to avoid adding to the ranks of Alzheimer's sufferers and becoming just another sobering statistic. Even taking risk factors into account, we can fight to delay the onset of Alzheimer's altogether--and one of the most effective ways of doing this is to retool our diets. That's right. Eating better might help your brain work better and ultimately might stave off Alzheimer's.
    Sound too good to be true? Well, a number of recent large, population-based studies have provided strong evidence linking a higher dietary intake of specific foods--those rich in the B-complex vitamins (especially B6, B12, and folates), antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and unsaturated fatty acids--to...
