Chapter Summaries

  • Chapter 1 – As a modern Sherlock Holmes the cause of Alzheimer’s disease is subjected to the scrutiny of a detective’s mind. Also the case for aluminum being the cause of Alzheimer’s disease is presented. Read this chapter by using the menu above the title on this page.
  • Chapter 2 – Explores the causes of stroke and the process of atherogenesis that leads to atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. Surprisingly the same factor that causes Alzheimer’s disease also causes stroke.
  • Chapter 3 – Describes how 7 supplements and a good diet work together to provide neuroprotection from the causes of Alzheimer’s, autism, and stroke.
  • Chapter 4 – Explains how your ingestion of the common causal factor of Alzheimer’s, autism, and stroke can be controlled by diet, drinking water selection and filtration.
  • Chapter 5 – Explains how your absorption of the common causal factor of Alzheimer’s, autism, and stroke can be controlled by a dissolved mineral.
  • Chapter 6 – Explores 7 lifestyle choices that can improve the chemical fitness of your brain and avoid the common causal factor of Alzheimer’s, autism, and stroke.
  • Chapter 7 – Describes drugs that postpone the onset of Alzheimer’s and drugs under development to possibly provide palliative relief to Alzheimer’s patients the future.
  • Chapter 8 – Looks at the bigger picture of how both the earth and human cultures have evolved to make us more susceptible to the neurotoxicity of the common causal factor of Alzheimer’s and stroke. And how this has led to modern mismatch diseases such as Alzheimer’s and stroke.
  • Chapter 9 – This chapter looks at why autism is also a modern mismatch disease and how to prevent autism with a vitamin and a dissolved mineral.
  • Conclusion – Provides recommendations for taking action individually and collectively that will improve your brain’s fitness and help you prevent Alzheimer’s, autism, and stroke.
