ARPF’s Scientific Approach to Alzheimer’s Prevention
2020 has been a historic and uncertain year for everyone and we hope that you are staying healthy and safe into this New Year!
While the focus has been on mitigating the spread of Covid-19, the other pandemic, Alzheimer’s disease, is still raging. In fact, the numbers continue to surge with the aging of the population. At the same time, people with cognitive decline are at higher risk of losing the battle to Covid. Those who do survive it are at further increased risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease as their brains are damaged by the virus.
But there is good news for sure. First of all, the vaccine is here, it just needs to be delivered and administrated. And beyond that, there is excellent news on Alzheimer’s prevention, and I’m happy to say we are on the forefront.
While there is no drug that has any impact on either the prevention or treatment of Alzheimer’s, our 4 Pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention® research provides alternatives to a drug approach and builds a healthier and stronger brain and memory. While we were on lockdown, your ARPF has remained determined to share our work by publishing in medical textbooks and by writing articles in prestigious medical journals such as the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
We are grateful to all of you for helping us by donating to support research that can help millions of people avoid memory loss, stay sharp with age, and build a healthier and stronger mind and memory. Your donations make it possible to enhance our work by hiring expert researchers who help us find ways to prevent Alzheimer’s through groundbreaking studies at leading medical schools.
Our latest study is called The Pink Brain™ Project and involves utilizing our ideas to prevent Alzheimer’s in high-risk women. A high-risk woman is one with heart disease, menopause, and memory issues.
Like all our leading-edge work, it is ground-breaking.
As you can imagine, 2020 has been hard on non-profit foundations like your ARPF. We can only continue to do our work and share our knowledge with your help and generosity. We thank you for that and hope that you can contribute to ARPF’s ongoing research efforts.
Thank you for being a part of ARPF. We wish you happiness and health in 2021!
