Most physicians now believe that the damage done by Alzheimer's is irreversible and that the best hope lies in preventing it. This is particularly true for people at higher risk. I believe passionately that we should all know what those risks factors are and work to turn them in our favor.
In this new book on Alzheimer's prevention, Dr. Gary Small and his co-author (and spouse) Gigi Vorgan clearly lay out a plan to prevent, delay and diminish the symptoms of AD for those who are at risk, which is most of us if we live long enough.
All you have to do is listen -- really listen -- to people newly diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease to know our nation has no time to waste in developing a national strategy to defeat this devastating disease.
