Automatic TRANSCRIPT

In this mini episode, , I speak with Dr David Perimeter Dr, , Lisa, , Mosconi Dr Dale, Br , Edison about why Alzheimer's is a preventable disease and the lifestyle factors that can set the stage for Alzheimer's years from. Now, . , we also talk about this disticts of Alzheimer's disease and its impact on women, , and what you can do today today to prevent cognitive decline in the future. . Let's listen in starting with interview with Dr. . David Pearl Mutter, , a board certified neurologist and four-time New York. . Times bestselling author, , we do know that a for the most part Alzheimer's is a preventable disease. . This is a disease costing Americans two hundred and thirty billion dollars affecting five point four million of us. . That is dramatically exploding in terms of its incidence and prevalence globally, , and yet you know the notion that our lifestyle choices are not relevant is it does take my breath away. . You know it's all about living a life that is less inflammatory and that certainly transcends are narrative as it relates to Alzheimer's but. . Involves Parkinson's and involves coronary artery disease diabetes and cancer, , and all of the chronic degenerative conditions, , and you know what really is so very important and I think sort of stands in our way of getting this information to really have traction is the time table that this is effective over for example, , you tell somebody wear your seatbelt that'll be good for you. . They get in a car accident they're wearing their seat belt and they say, , Hey, , I get it that worked yesterday I was in that accident worked. . But the inflammation issues that are relevant in terms of causing the brain to degenerate or narrowing the coronary arteries. . These are issues that are beginning to take shape ten, , twenty, , thirty years prior to actual disease manifestation, , and therefore it makes it very challenging for the consumer to connect those dots. . Let me give you an example. . <hes>. . In the journal Neurology, , which is arguably one of our most well respected neurology journals on the planet period viewed. . There was an interesting study that was published and it measured in a group of several thousand individuals who were in their forties and fifties. . At the time it measured markers in their blood of inflammation and the study then came back and looked at the same group of individuals twenty four years later, , the study again was just. . And what it found was really quite remarkable. . There was very direct relationship between risk for developing Alzheimer's disease and having had higher measurement of blood inflammatory markers twenty four years ago. . So what does it say? ? It says that if you? ? Elevated Markers of inflammation in your blood today, , you are setting the stage for Alzheimer's years from now and so that your lifestyle choices today whether you choose to eat low carb high carb high fat low-fat whether you choose said integrity vs physical activity the amount of sleep that you get. . Hopefully that is restorative the amount of stress in your life, , etc. . these are all extremely important variables. . Which you have control that clearly are connected to your brains Dini. . This is not live your life come what may and we have a pill for you. . If you're suddenly cognitively impaired is the other story. . The story is that you make lifestyle choices today that will dramatically impact how your brain works to three decades from now
