Is Alzheimer’s really preventable?
Isn’t in ‘in the genes’?

To answer these questions this masterclass brings you a world class team of leading scientists who, having examined and researched aspects of prevention, are committed to reducing Alzheimer’s disease risk. They come together to show us what practical steps can and must be taken to prevent this terrible disease which causes more deaths, consumes more healthcare costs, and is most people’s number one fear.

MEET THE EXPERTS

Professor Jin Tai Yu, Vice Director of the Institute of Neurology, Fudan University, Shanghai, China, has completed the most thorough meta-analysis of 396 studies to calculate the key factors, and degrees of risk, each confers for Alzheimer’s dementia.

Professor Emeritus David Smith, University of Oxford and former Deputy Head of the Faculty of Medical Science, has conducted landmark research showing the significant impact B vitamins have on preventing accelerated brain shrinkage in those with mild cognitive impairment.

Dr Simon Dyall, Programme Lead for Clinical Neuroscience and Clinical Nutrition at the University of Roehampton and a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids, brings us up to date on brain fats, especially omega-3, which make up 10-20% of the structural lipids of the brain and the growing body of evidence that an optimal intake of omega-3 fatty acids may be a key factor in preventing age-related cognitive decline.

Professor Jeremy Spencer is Professor of Nutritional Biochemistry and Medicine at the University of Reading and is widely regarded as a leading expert in the role of plant-based nutrients, antioxidants and polyphenols and the role they play in preventing cognitive decline.

Dr David Vauzour, Senior Research Fellow and Principal Investigator at Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia, UK specialising in diet, gut health and the brain and brings us up to speed on the role of the gut as the ‘second brain, and microbiome integrity, in potecting the brain.

Professor Emeritus Robert Lustig, Division of Endocrinology, University of California and Member of the Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California, San Francisco specialises in the effects of processed food and fructose in destabilising metabolism with terrible consequences for both brain and body, identifying what we need to eat to keep our brain healthy. He is a best-selling author of Fat Chance and Metabolical.

Dr Tommy Wood, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Neuroscience at the University of Washington, Seattle, and founding director of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine, the role of an active body, mind and social interaction, stress and sleep on cognition.
