Thank you for highlighting the excellent "Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging" (2008) by researchers with the Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility, who provide an outstanding summary of recent research on Alzheimer's disease. Credible summaries about this complex condition have become increasingly rare in recent years due to the vast amount of research that is published each week. For anyone interested in reducing the risk of Alzheimer's, this publication is a goldmine.

Hi Peggy, thank you for your comment. I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you looking for medical professionals in Arizona or simply fun things to do?

You might contact the local Alzheimer's Association chapter where your father will be visiting, or maybe the Banner Alzheimer's Institute (http://www.bannerhealth.com/_Alzheimers/Alzheimers_Disease_Institute.htm) for advice.

Good luck!

Good piece, Mona. It seems the research cited here brings us to a Ptolemaic understanding of Alzheimers: there are multiple factors all rotating around this disease, but still not sure what is cause and what is effect. I suppose research will continue to aim for a Galilean orbit: a central cause with a clear pathology.
In the meantime, live well, laugh often, love much.
