" The Alzheimer's Prevention Cookbook" is a science-to-table plan that can help prevent Alzheimer's disease, and its strategies and recipes--from sandwiches to salads and beverages to main dishes--can also diminish your chances of developing other inflammatory illnesses like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. This combination cookbook and health guide is a powerful, proactive, and preventive approach to achieving optimum brain health.
