Alzheimer's: Insulin Resistance and Nutrition

The Alzheimer’s epidemic is a post-World War II phenomenon. At the turn of the 20th century, Alzheimer’s was virtually unknown, now it is projected to affect half of the American population. A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is considered to be a death sentence. It affects every aspect of a person’s life: their memory, their ability to learn; and the loss of their very identity. The emotional and financial cost of an Alzheimer’s patient to family and friends is enormous. This program looks at every aspect of the Alzheimer’s epidemic … The dramatic new scientific findings regarding its causes … Its relationship to poverty and diet … And finally, startling new discoveries by a new breed of Alzheimer’s researchers that hold the promise of reversing and even curing Alzheimer’s through diet.
