  6. 6. Copyright © 2012 Catherine Levenstein Chapter 1: Introduction As the American population's average age continues to climb, Alzheimer's disease has become more prevalent. In fact, it has claimed enough lives to now be the third leading cause of death in elderly people, after heart disease and cancer. Over 4.5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, a number that has grown dramatically in recent years. If current trends continue, that number is projected to rise to 16 million by the year 2050. In addition, over $100 billion has been spent on Alzheimer's disease in the U.S. alone! This deadly neurodegenerative disease brings additional pain and heartache for the family of Alzheimer's patients, because it affects patients' brain cells, in turn weakening patients' memories, emotional and social skills, language abilities, and other mental functions.

  7. 7. Copyright © 2012 Catherine Levenstein Chapter 2: What is alzheimer's disease? Alzheimer's has been a recognized disease for over one hundred years. Prior to that time, mental deterioration and forgetfulness were considered a natural stage, known as senility, in the aging process. In 1907, Dr. Alois Alzheimer published the results of an autopsy he conducted on a woman who had been severely demented before her death in 1906. In that autopsy, Dr. Alzheimer discovered neurofibrillary tangles and senile plaques in her brain. Such characteristics are not exclusive to Alzheimer's disease; they can also occur in people's brains who have other neurodegenerative diseases. The plaques are composed primarily of a protein known as beta amyloid. This form of protein can accumulate quickly and easily, and it is toxic to brain cells. In other words, when deposits of beta amyloid build up as plaque, it kills brain cells. They tend to build up on the amygdala, neocortex, and hippocampus especially.

  11. 11. Copyright © 2012 Catherine Levenstein Chapter 6: Natural And Healthy Eating The importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet in your mission to lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease cannot be overstated. One powerful story that shows this principle of how mental health is linked with physical health occurred with prisoners of war. Held in Japanese internment camps, these soldiers were on a limited diet. As a result of not taking in enough food for nearly four long years, several thousand of these soldiers developed premature senility. Despite not being of the age to normally become senile, the malnutrition expedited their regression. • OLIVE OIL • OTHER KEY EATING TIPS The complete book is available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Alzheimers-Disease-Prevention-Blueprint-ebook/dp/B008S7ZB92/
