Is it a user friendly, written in layman terms type of book?

It's user friendly, and she uses analogies to describe the biological players and processes.

Just started The End of Alzheimer's: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline, Dale Bredesen 2017

from the bottom of page 9 to the top of page 10:

[after explaining about the failure of the amyloid-beta hypothesis drugs...]

If you have a high risk of developing Alzheimer's because of the genes you carry, if you have already developed it, or if you have a loved one who has, you therefore have every right to be very upset about this situation.

No wonder we have come to fear Alzheimer's disease as omnipotent. As hopeless. As impervious to any and all treatments.

Until now.

Let me say this as clearly as I can: Alzheimer's disease can be prevented, and in many cases its associated cognitive decline can be reversed. For that is precisely what my colleagues and I have shown in peer-reviewed studies in leading medical journals - studies that, for the first time, describe exactly this remarkable result in patients. Yes. I know it flouts decades of conventional wisdom to claim that cognitive decline can be reversed, that there are hundreds of patients who have done just that, and that there are steps we can all take now to prevent the cognitive decline that experts have long believed to be unavoidable an irreversible. These are bold claims deserving of healthy skepticism. I expect you to exercise that skepticism as you read about the three decades of research in my lab, which culminated in the first reversals of cognitive decline in early Alzheimer's disease and it's precursors, MCI (mild cognitive impairment) and SCI (subjective cognitive impairment). I expect you to exercise that skepticism as you read the stories of these patients, patients who climbed out of the abyss of cognitive decline. I expect you to exercise that skepticism as you read about the personalized therapeutic programs we developed to enable everyone to prevent cognitive impairment and, if they are already showing signs of it, to stop mental decline in its tracks and restore their ability to remember, to think, and to once again live a cognitively healthy life.

Here is one of his studies. THanks s93!

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4221920/

I copied down the treatment protocol. ANd interestingly, many of these treatments are the same as Dr Daniel AMen lists in his Healing ADD book.


hmmmmmmmmm

Son and I are choking down cod liver oil these days. Need more oysters. To alternate with sardines in oil. Bone in, of course!

This was a surprise, the study was released Nov 2nd and today's newsletter was first time heard about it.

Alzheimer’s Drugs Worsen Cognitive Function

Quote:
....On November 2, 2018, the American Medical Association, in their journal, JAMA Network Open, published the results of an extensive meta-analysis designed to determine the effectiveness not only of ChEIs, like Aricept, but also another medication also approved called memantine, marketed under the name Namenda. The research evaluated 10 high-quality studies published in peer-reviewed journals and included a total of 2,714 participants.

The findings of this study not only confirmed the lack of the effectiveness of either of these drug types, used alone or combined, but actually demonstrated that the use of these medications, again, drugs like Aricept and Namenda, where shown to correlate to a faster rate of cognitive decline. Again, the very drugs that are being prescribed across our country, and indeed around the world, with the idea that they are somehow going to treat Alzheimer’s disease are actually associated with a more aggressive decline in cognitive function:....

LOL YUMMY!!!!!

( FYI-- only need one oyster a day to get the daily allotment of zinc. I split a can with my boys, we get 6-8 servings of zinc from one can. When I have it on hand, of course.)

Thanks for staying on top of finding information. Seems like drugs, surprise surprise, will not be the answer. I keep resorting to diet and environmental contaminants as the trigger.

I just saw an ad on TV for a New class action suit because some diabetic meds are causing gangrene of the genitals! It didn't elaborate any more than that but I can just imagine!!!

Exactly! That's only what's obvious and visible. Like you said, who knows what other damage it's causing with blood vessels.
It's like we're all human guinea pigs, disposable. There is probably a reserve they keep to payoff claims. We're just a cost of doing business these days.
Just unbelievable!

Lordy I haven’t seen that AD!
Makes the "it just doesn’t work or hastens decline" a minor blip.
