The Quest To End Alzheimer’s: Dale Bredesen #522
By: Dave Asprey
August 30, 2018
Dr. Dale Bredesen has spent over 30 years researching the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and has recently published the first paper on the Reversal Of Cognitive Decline in patients with early onset Alzheimer’s. He truly is a pioneer in the science of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases of the brain. He is also an internationally recognized expert on how Alzheimer’s happens, and his lab, the Bredesen Laboratory, studies the mechanisms behind neurodegeneration.
Even if you don’t have Alzheimer’s, or don’t know anyone with Alzheimer’s, you have a greater chance of getting Alzheimer’s disease than you think … assuming you don’t get hit by a car when you’re young.
The information that you will learn in this podcast episode will not only help protect you against neurodegenerative diseases but it has led to the publication of 220 research papers. Dr. Bredesen just wrote an entire book called The End of Alzheimer’s that, frankly, everyone should read.
Enjoy the show!
