100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's
100 Simple Things You Can do To Prevent Alzheimer's
September 20th 2010 by Little, Brown and Company
Trade Paperback Pgs 322
I admit it, the title is what caught my attention. How can a person ‘prevent’ Alzheimer’s if medical science is still not sure what causes it? So of course, I had to stop and pick up the book.
Beginning with the introduction, author Jean Carper is back peddling. “What to do while we wait for a cure”. That should have been the title of the book.
What follows are 100 chapters outlining healthy living. Alcohol usage, vitamins, exercise, keeping an active brain, socializing, etc.
I did not come across anything in this book that is new. The author is relying on information that is already widely available.
Save your money.
Adopt a healthy lifestyle and you can lower your risk, but that is no guarantee that you can “prevent” Alzheimer’s like the title of this book implies.
