Rudy Tanzi in my opinion is the most knowledgeable person in the world when it comes to Alzheimer's disease.

A child of Alzheimer's, Rudy has dedicated his life to finding an effective treatment for Alzheimer's disease. Rudy is not a hog or looking to make a billion dollars from Alzheimer's disease. He willing shares his research findings and intellectual capital with the world. He is not patenting the genes he finds through research, he is sharing this information with scientists all over the world.


Rudy knows how to speak in a way that is easily understandable. He is not using any "fancy words" to try and impress.

In the 4 minute video below

you will learn about the 6 most important things you can do to help protect your brain against dementia; and, how to store up synapses as you age to help your brain ward off dementia.


I hope you will listen and then share this article in the Alzheimer's community. Not only will this help you keep a healthy brain, I also believe it will help you help the brain of those already living with Alzheimer's and dementia.



Please pay close attention to number two - the importance of getting enough sleep.

When talking about deep sleep Tanzi says if you are not getting enough of the right kinds of sleep,

"you may as well be smoking and eating 2 bags of potato chips a night".

Dr. Rudolph Tanzi is the Vice-Chair of Neurology and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital
