Contents:
1. Introduction -- 2. A little background on dementia and Alzheimer's disease -- 3. Interesting and important historical and demographic facts about the epidemic of Alzheimer's disease in developed countries pointing to environmental intoxicants causing the epidemic -- 4. Candidate environmental factors for the Alzheimer's epidemic part 1 : the metals--aluminum, lead, mercury, zinc, iron, and copper -- 5. Candidate environmental factors for the Alzheimer's epidemic part 2 : diet and other lifestyle factors -- 6. Identification of copper-2 and copper in general, as major environmental intoxicants in the Alzheimer's disease epidemic : the copper hypothesis -- 7. Background on copper, including why copper-2 is so specifically neurotoxic -- 8. Inorganic copper, or copper-2, ingestion as a major causal factor for the Alzheimer's disease epidemic : the web of evidence -- 9. Increased copper absorption resulting from dietary changes in developed countries as another causal factor in the Alzheimer's disease epidemic -- 10. The copper hypothesis fits nicely with known risk factors and theories of Alzheimer's disease causation -- 11. Prevention measures action items : two simple steps to eliminate ingestion of copper-2, and dietary changes to reduce copper absorption -- 12. Failures : what the government has not done to ensure healthy drinking water and nontoxic multimineral pills -- 13. Treatment of Alzheimer's disease -- 14. Summary and conclusion
Summary: This book examines the increased incidence of the disease in developed countries, and provides new insights into environmental causation, primarily metals
