Reviews

"[A] comprehensive yet easy-to-follow nutritional guide for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease . . . [the authors] provide realistic and straightforward guidance . . . [they] take the guesswork out of creating a healthy and appealing diet by providing lists of recommended food and supplements, serving sizes, and weekly menu ideas. This book is recommended for anyone who cares about long-term mental health."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"[E]ven skeptics who question whether diet can truly prevent dementia will find it tough to object to this guide . . . [the authors] make a compelling case for staying slim, noting that overweight people are considered to be at greater risk of developing hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, and cancer . . . may reduce the risk of getting this irreversible, memory-destroying brain disorder."
