We learned a thousand things about the disease that we didn't know before. We learned what medications there are to slow down the disease. We learned that age is only one marker of the disease, as is heredity. The vignettes of the patients and families and doctors and caregivers are touching. They give the general audience an idea of what these people are going through. More important, though, is what the documentary tells us about our future as we age. Every man, woman, and adolescent ought to see this film to understand 1) what is happening to their dear ones and 2) the liklihood of your getting the disease.
As the documentary states, the brain is a muscle that can put out more neurons if it is oxygenated (exercise, exercise) and if one's lifestyle is sedentary, the brain atrophies.
Please watch this, and tell eveyone you know about it.
Before Ronald Regan announced that he had the disease, no one talked about it, and certainly did not advocate research. I have seen the awareness grow over the years, but this particular series is the absolute best I have seen rearding Alzheimer's and the devestation it brings to families. I only wish that all major networks would play these tapes all in the same time frame (like the presidential speaches) so that more people will be truely aware of this horrible disease. We all are likely to get it eventually as we are living longer and longer. What a blessing it would be to humanity to eradicate Alzheimer's.
Huge kudos to Maria Shriver and the Alzheimer's Association for this wonderful film.
