Food for Thought Book Club 2017

There are currently more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and researchers, Sue Linja and Dr. SeAnne Safaii-Waite experienced the progression of Alzheimer’s in their mothers. They have traveled the world researching longevity diets and have examined all of the evidence-based research on diet and Alzheimer’s in order to offer their simple and practical dietary approach to protecting the brain from Alzheimer’s. In their groundbreaking, newly-released book, they offer a realistic 2-week meal plan, profiles of more than 100 foods for brain health, and an easy-to-understand overview of diets being researched for brain health.

According to Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, Joseph P. and Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, “This is not a simple diet book – it’s a food bible that tells you all you need to know to start eating your way to a healthy brain, right now.”

The book discusses the Alzheimer’s-diet connection, brain-boosting diets in perspective, foods that nourish and protect the brain, and tips for a healthy lifestyle.

Join us as we explore the latest evidence-based research on eating for brain health and preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

We will meet in the WMHS Willowbrook Office Complex on the second floor, beginning July 11 or 12th and continue until August 15.  Optional days and times are either on Tuesdays at noon or Wednesdays at 4:30.
