New Book Dissects Surge In Brain Disease

Neurodegenerative disease is around the world. Crossbow CEO and Author Gary Chandler hopes to reverse that trend with science.

Death rates from heart disease, cancer and other leading causes of death are dropping. Neurodegenerative disease is the is spreading exponentially. In the U.S., for example, deaths attributed to Alzheimer’s disease increased 71 percent from 2000 to 2013, while those attributed to heart disease decreased 14 percent.

The pandemic is more severe in some countries than others. Finland and Iceland had the highest prevalence rates just a few years ago. Now, countries in the Middle East and Persian Gulf states have soared to the top of the list. Most cases go unrecorded, so the true scope of the problem is unknown. A variety of factors can trigger neurodegenerative disease, including genetics, head trauma and exposure to deadly prions (pree-on). The Mayo Clinic claims that Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are largely preventable.

“Contrary to popular belief, neurodegenerative disease is not a normal part of aging,” said Gary Chandler, a prion expert and author of Alzheimer’s Disease: A Survival Guide. “Prion contamination is fueling the majority of the prion pandemic. Neurodegenerative disease is now killing teenagers. The truth is your best defense.”

Chandler’s new book helps readers navigate the complex landscape of prion aversion and targeted nutrition.

For example, experts claim that the risk for cognitive impairment is 42 percent lower in elderly individuals who consume healthy fats and fewer carbohydrates. Up to half of those who have Alzheimer’s disease could have prevented it with a smarter diet and exercise. Targeted nutrition is our best hope for both prevention and treatment. “Our health is linked to our ability to get optimal nutrition for the fewest calories,” Chandler said. “The more that we decrease our calories, while staying optimally nourished, the better our chances of healthy aging and longevity.”

Unfortunately, drugs don’t work against Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease, yet. At best, they ease the symptoms slightly, if at all. However, new treatments aimed at purging the deadly proteins from the brain are showing promise.
