--How 90% of Alzheimer's cases are age-related, while the remaining 10% of early onset cases are caused by a genetic issue.
--The role of free radicals, fatty acids, lowered oxygenation, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, inflammation, head trauma, smoking, depression, and pharmaceuticals in the formation of Alzheimer's Disease.
--Why the current treatments for Alzheimer's are described as "lackluster at best". And why the deaths from Alzheimer's are likely underreported on death certificates.
--How the Prather Practice helps fight Alzheimer's by dealing with the root issues that cause the disease. And how anemia increases your odds of getting Alzheimer's.
