After reading the material for this episode, I have decided that I am now on a mission. I am a rebel with a cause. What cause, you ask? I have come to believe that it may be possible to stop the onslaught of Alzheimer's disease. But we must attack this problem head-on. And that means perhaps making sacrifices that we are presently not ready to make. But if we learn that making change matters, then it might matter enough for us to make these changes. In part 1 of this series on Alzheimer's disease, I go over some definitive terms and review general risk factors for the disease. NIH, or national Institute of health, has a fact sheet, which can be found here. The Mayo Clinic lists the symptoms of the disease in this article. As always, feel free to email me with any comments or questions on my website contact page. I am always looking for ideas for new podcast episodes, so I appreciate all suggestions! I now have a patreon page, which is here. If you could find it in your heart to donate $1, $2, or $3 per month to keep this podcast churning out episodes, it would be greatly appreciated!
