Inside Alzheimer's: Hacking Alzheimer's with Steve Fowkes
Alzheimer's, the cruel disease that destroys mental function, steals dignity, and frustrates families...may be preventable - even reversible.
The startling statistics (from the Alzheimer's Association):
- 5.4 million people suffer from Alzheimers'
- 1 in 3 seniors will die with some form of cognitive impairment (Alzheimer's or Dementia)
- It kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined
- Every 66 seconds someone new is diagnosed. This number will become every 33 seconds by 2050.
Did we mention it may be preventable. And reversible?
Steve Fowkes explains how on this week's Optimal Performance Podcast.
