    This was a well done, eye opening book, one that as a 49 year old really put the fear of God in me That s because it s an overview of the latest research into Alzheimer s, essentially a roundup of what new information has been proven over and over again enough to now basically be a consensus among the medical community and that consensus turns out to be that Alzheimer s is actually largely preventable, that the preventable steps all happen in your forties and fifties, and that these preventable steps mean the difference between having a 10 percent chance of getting Alzheimer s in your elderly years and a 90 percent chance of getting it.Yeah, I know It was a real wake up call for middle agers like myself, the knowledge that there s a 25 year gap between the onset of dementia issues and the first outward signs of it and that means that when you re the same age as me, it s crucially important that you re keeping the sugar and carbs in your diet down to a minimum, that you re cutting out bad cholesterol, that you re keeping your height weight ratio at its optimal balance for your particular...

    This was an interesting and eye opening book I thought that the author did a very good job of showing the connection between artery health and future issues with forms of dementia and Altzheimer s The author highlights important reasons to be eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly to decrease the likelihood of dementia.This subject matter is pretty heavy and I did have to take breaks between reading through sections of it because, let s face it, it is hard to think of this happening to yourself or a loved one someday.I apprecia...

    I found this to be a well researched and well written book I could not stop reading and I finished the book within 2 days I wish I had had access to this book when I was in my 30s and 40s It would have helped also with the experience with my parents.

    So I got this book a bit skeptically It s not my style of reading, even though I am a nurse and it probably should be Anyone who knows me really well knows I can be the biggest skeptic if there s anything like a cure all or fix it diet or medication or herb or additive or whatever But hey, it was a free book, so why not try it I mean everyone knows you can t do anything to prevent Alzheimer s, so let s see what the latest idea is now.And am I glad I did, because I was wrong I had no idea that there had been this kind of extensive research done on Alzheimer s and what seems to be causing it There really is not a full understanding of Alzheimer s Scientists know how the brain looks when it has Alzheimer s, they can see the results of it, they can even start to see the start of it, happening years, up to 30, before any symptoms show up , but the whole etiology of the disease is still murky But, what research as showed us is that there are things people do that seem to greatly reduce their chances of developing Alzheimer s and the research seems solid and it seems normal It actually comes back to my oft stated comment about disease, water and exercise solves everythi...

    Defeating Dementia described in detail the three stages of Alzheimer s, studies on the main risk factors that make you likely to get dementia sedentary lifestyle, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol , and the things you can do that will greatly decrease your chances of getting dementia and heart disease like exercise, eating or avoiding certain foods, and not smoking.This book was very encouraging Even though there are no medicines to cure dementia, there are things that you can do in your forties and fifties to help prevent dementia later in life These behaviors can also slow or stop the progress of the disease once it has been diagnosed He recommended things like doing physical movement, like walking or jogging 30 minutes each day for 6 days a week Avoiding foods high in saturated fat and cholesterol, like red meat, cream, butter, cheese, and fried foods Eating fish, fruit, and vegetables His recommendations were based on studies, and he summarized these studies in terms that non scientists can easily understand.However, it was depressing to read snippets throughout the book describing how his mother in law descended into dementia He used the story to illustrate the changes that happen in each stage, but he also appealed to fear to motivate people to make changes He made a strong case fo...

    2.5 stars So I m really on the fence with this book I think this book has some great information, but the author I feel is a little to strict in his conclusion I believe the author is very genuine in his feelings and his want for people to live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives, but I also think he goes about it in a way that would rub some people the wrong way He has great information of the reasons we get dementia, and it has to do with our arteries Which when he goes through and explains it all, it totally makes sense And the best way to prevent dementia would be a healthy living style which he goes into detail about the specific things that would be helpful But the problem is that he would keep saying that he couldn t understand how anyone would continue doing bad thing here when they knew it would help contribute to them possibly getting dementia in the future Once you knew how bad cheese was for you, you would never eat cheese again I think he h...

    Defeating Dementia What You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer s and Other Forms of DementiaBy Richard Furman MD, FACSDementia Alzheimer s Both words conjure up feelings of dread fear of what may be ahead But what does one truly know about this topic In Defeating Dementia Richard Furman attempts to educate the reader in both the stages of Alzheimer s and the steps one can take to reduce the risks of developing this dreaded condition.Offering personal insights into his mother in law s progression through the stages of Alzheimer s Dr Furman shares the slow and steady mental decline of a loved one These insights are offered throughout the book as the disease is explained in terms that most people can readily understand Possible causes are explored as well as lifestyle changes one can make when diagnosed to hopefully slow the progression Those who have no symptoms can also benefit by taking proactive measures to hopefully stop dementia before it starts.One statement that is worth memorizing per Dr Furman on page 81 is a healthy brain depends on the health of the heart as well as the arteries of the heart and the brain The heart brain connection is vital as it supplies the brain with the oxygen and the nutrients it needs while removing waste from the brain The five risk factors that one needs to eliminate high cholesterol, a ...

    Defeating Dementia by Richard Furman, MD, FACS is a great book to read Currently, my grandpa and I are struggling with my grandma She is suffering from dementia The things listed in this book may not take away the Dementia she is suffering from but it could help improve her memory a little bit Obesity is a huge factor for dementia My grandma is 78 years old and overweight She eats sugar and fried foods than she does healthy ones Plus, she is hurting with knee pain She cannot walk as fast as my 80 year old grandpa He walks slow but it feels faster than the pace my grandma uses She walks back and forth in the halls of our house but not for 30 minutes a day Exercise, dieting, and staying mentall and socially active helps prevent or slow down this horrible disease No, we cannot cure it yetbut to prevent it and slowing it from happening to us, is better than nothing at all We can keep ourselves healthy and sharp We have to make changes while we re young and keep at them until the end Defeating Dem...

    I watched my paternal grandfather go through dementia and I know how heartbreaking it is for loved ones As a result, Defeating Dementia by Richard Furman looked interesting and helpful as someone who doesn t want to follow in my grandfather s footsteps.Dr Furman has been a vascular surgeon for than thirty years He draws on his expertise to write Defeating Dementia At the same time, he watched his mother in law go through dementia so he also writes as one who has witnessed the challenges of the disease in a loved one Defeating Dementia is divided into four parts Understanding Dementia, The Aging Process and the Health of Your Arteries, The Risk Factors for Developing Alzheimer s, and Lifestyle Choices for Defeating Dementia This book is straightforward and written so a layperson can easily understand the process and how to prevent the disease Throughout the book, he also shares a sidebar of his mother in law Mrs Dell s experience with dementia.I found Defeating Dementia to be interesting and easy to read I thought he presented the facts quite well My only concern is that he tends to push just one way of doing t...

    I was quite excited when I saw this book, as I have always wanted to know about dementia A couple of years ago, my grandfather passed away from Louis body Dementia, and while this book puts of an emphasis on Alzheimer s, and was still able to get a deeper insight as to what was happening in the brain of my grandfather.Author Richard Furman does a very good job of relating to the readers, providing many stories from his own life The book contains a good amount of simple medical talk with good explanations, perfect for people who want to know about dementia but didn t go to medical school Furman not only explains what happens in your body when you get dementia, but also what you can do from early on to help prevent it Basically, keep your heart healthy and you have a better chance of not getting dementia, as dementia is partly caused by plaque build ups in the arteries that bring nutrients to the brain So if you wan...
