Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. Care for its victims costs more than the expense of heart disease and cancer combined. This class and slide show is based on the latest scientific research from leading journals worldwide. Find out which two nutrients are crucial for lowering the buildup of amyloid plaques. You will learn how to lower your risk by increasing your intake of antioxidant fruits, vegetables, and seeds. Lowering saturated fats in the diet can result in better blood flow to the brain.
