“Power Foods for the Brain”
The TED talk for this Saturday is one that should be near and dear to all of us who are either seniors; have parents who are seniors; or want to live long enough and healthy enough to be a senior, since 30% of Caucasians, 58% of African Americans, and 62% of the Hispanic population who reach age 85 will have some form of dementia. Dr. Neal Barnard gives us, “Power Foods for the Brain” that will reduce our chances of getting Alzheimer’s or any other dementia. And before you say it’s too late for you or your parents, one of the studies he presents was done in 78-year olds and the results are amazing.
Dr. Barnard is a cardiologist and adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, president and founder of the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and founder of Barnard Medical Center, a nonprofit primary care medical center in Washington, D.C. And according to the Alzheimer’s Association, the best thing you can do for your brain is what you should do for your heart.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.
Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.
A discussion will take place after the lecture.
