The End of Alzheimer's
Dr. Bredesen’s research and clinical experience shows great insight into a disease we have been told is incurable and irreversible. By studying the biology and pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, he has determined there are three risk sub-groups that require and respond to different treatments. This is a fantastic resource for practitioners, their families, and their patients.
Every citizen and medical professional interested in the brain and its health should read this seminal book. It should provide much of the basis for a true revolution in brain health medicine. Michael Merzenich, PhD, winner of the Kavil Prize in Neuroscience
