It’s safe to say that Alzheimer’s disease research is in a “state of crisis.”

For the past two decades, over 73,000 research articles have been published, yet little clinical progress has been made. The reason a cure may be impossible is because lost cognitive functions in Alzheimer’s disease patients are due to fatally damaged neuronal networks, and dead nerve cells cannot be brought back to life.

It really is easy, but if the prospect seems too difficult, consider the alternative.  Life is short and wouldn’t it better to go through it in a relaxed and happy state of mind with healthy relationships?

I saw a tweet that seemed pretty profound, “People ask me if it’s hard to be a vegan and I answer that it’s harder not to be.” Truly. …read more of Plant-Based Eating – Good for Body and Mind here
