Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and one of the most terrifying diseases out there. Polls show that people are more scared of getting memory loss and dementia in old age than any other illness.
Mild memory loss tends to increase with age and generally no cause for concern, but memory loss could also be an early symptom of Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age. Younger-onset also known as early-onset Alzheimer’s affects people younger than 65 and 5 million people in the United States alone have younger-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.
Since 2000, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased by 89%, and in 2015 The Alzheimer’s Disease International estimated that someone in the world develops a form of dementia every three seconds.
Yet some populations in the world like South Asia and Africa not only live long, healthy lives but remain cognitively healthy too.
So what are they doing right? That is what we are going to discuss today. We are going to discover ways you can protect yourself from Alzheimer’s Disease, memory loss, and dementia. And find out the brain's incredible potential to improve cognitive function with diet. It is never too late to reverse or improve symptoms.
