I'd been talking with a patron one day about age and memory loss. She returned to the desk a short time later with Jean Carper's book 100 Simple Things You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's and Age-related Memory Loss. I decided to take a look. The book explains how this disease ravages the brain. The good news is there are things we can do to prevent, or at least ward off, the onset. Exercise and diet are key to preventing the plaques from building up in the brain and interfering with memory. There are also supplemental drugs you can take to turn the tables in your favor. You can use certain brain exercises to keep your brain healthy. Internet searching has also been credited with helping since it involves quick, frequent decision making. People who develop Alzheimer's carry a certain gene. This doesn't mean they'll get Alzheimer's - only that they are more prone. As the author states, the more you know about the disease and ways to prevent it, the better are your chances of avoiding it. Everyone should read this book to protect their health and quality of life.

This sounds like a good book. The more we know about this the better we are prepared to prevent it, which seems like a better plan than curing it, if you can.
