What the recent NIH Expert Panel on Alzheimer’s Prevention Means – and Doesn’t Mean

brainpicIn late April 2010, an independent expert panel organized by the NIH released a thoughtful report on the state of the science for prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease and cognitive decline*. The report summarizes the panel’s review of the scientific literature by saying:

“Firm conclusions cannot be drawn about the association of modifiable risk factors with cognitive decline or Alzheimer’s disease.”

Which was basically reported as “nothing can prevent Alzheimer’s Disease.”

Which is very true. And also very different from what most readers may assume it means.

Note: You can keep reading the article What the recent NIH Expert Panel on Alzheimer’s Prevention Means – and Doesn’t Mean in the website of the American Society of Aging (article link opens PDF). ASA recently asked me to write a couple of articles on latest brain fitness and cognitive health trends for their MindAlert initiative, and this is the first of two.
