I was tested and carry the APOE-3 and 4 alleles. My mother died from Alzheimer's; my grandmother, her mother. I wanted to know. Now I've read all the books I can find on dietary changes, exercise, mental stimulation and have incorporated them into my already healthy vegan lifestyle. I even had a brain scan with the Amen Clinics and was told my brain showed no signs at all of potential AD. Knowledge is power and stimulates to action.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
