Alzheimer’s disease is the silent epidemic claiming the lives of millions of patients and destroying families. This talk will explain what Alzheimer’s disease is and how it develops in the brain. The speaker will also try to explain why therapy has proved so elusive and summarise recent findings on lifestyle factors that may reduce the risk of dementia or may even slow the disease process.
