Webinar:  Emerging Science: Diet Modifications to Reduce Alzheimer's Disease Risk
Date: January 23, 2019
Time: 2:00-3:00 PM EST
 
Alzheimer’s disease is the 5th leading cause of death in those 65 and older and by 2050, it is estimated that 16 million people will have Alzheimer’s with one person every 33 seconds developing this punishing disease. Up until now, prevention of chronic diseases though diet has been focused on cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer…but that is changing. Mounting evidence is pointing to the Western diet as a likely culprit behind Alzheimer’s disease – as it is in obesity, cardiovascular disease and others. This session will provide a meta-analysis of the research behind the Alzheimer’s – diet connection, review other diets currently being touted for dementia prevention and clearly outline the nutrition behind foods that can help nourish and protect the brain from Alzheimer’s disease. 
 
CPEU has been applied for this webinar presented on January 23, 2019.
