Alzheimer's Disease in the News

We heard the sad announcement out of Denver that Pat Bowlen, the 30-year owner of the Broncos, is stepping aside from his involvement with the team to deal with Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's is one of the most mysterious of diseases, with a lot of uncertainty in the medical community about exactly what causes it and what the risk factors are.

We thought we would repost this podcast from last fall with Dr. Heather M. Snyder, Director of Medical and Scientific Relations at the Alzheimer’s Association. She discusses what is known and what is still unknown about Alzheimer's disease, including current thinking about possible links between diet, lifestyle and potential causes.
