About the Author

Scott D. Mendelson is currently a consult liaison psychiatrist at the Roseburg VA Medical Center in Roseburg, Oregon. He graduated with honors from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in 1996, and then completed a four-year residency in psychiatry at the University of Virginia Health Sciences Center in Charlottesville. His work on the link between metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity and psychiatric illness has been called "magnificent" by his peers, and the Journal of the American Medical Association called his first book, Metabolic Syndrome and Psychiatric Illness, "brilliant and scholarly."
Dr. Mendelson lives in Roseburg, Oregon.

I am a Social Worker assisting clients and families affected by dementia. I must say, Beyond Alzheimer's is the best book I have read on this topic. Dr. Mendelson's writing style keeps both the layman and professional in mind. The book provides easy to understand descriptions of the physiology of the brain as we age, causes of dementia, and preventative strategies - including well studied alternative approaches. Beyond Alzheimer's is very well researched, citing the most current data available. It is on the top of my list to recommend to both colleagues and clients.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in A) the definitions for Alzheimer's, Dementia and related issues, B) the causes of Dementia, and C) the many ways to help prevent and treat dementia. Great for both caregivers and those touched by dementia, as well as the layperson simply interested in enlightening him/herself about the realities of this crippling problem that is becoming more and more prevalent across the globe.

Like his previous book "Metabolic Syndrome and Psychiatric Illness, Dr. Mendelson's new book BEYOND ALZHEIMERS - how to avoid the modern epidemic of dementia -ventures with great clarity to new conceptualizations of very important health issues. His insights are remarkable and I thoroughly enjoy his writing which I find compelling.

Whether you are a caregiver or simply an individual interested in the various forms of dementia and the methods by which you may help the afflicted or reduce your personal risks of your own aging, this book is for YOU. I recommend you first read Jean Carper's 100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's; to provide a solid background to fully respect Dr. Scott D. Mendelson's book and its highly detailed and sourced presentation to avoid dementia and the approaching epidemic in our society. You will learn first hand how the breakdown of 'common sense' diet, nutritional, exercise, and personal hygiene abandons made by our society will develop into the worst malaise imaginable - and perhaps why deep in the design of our National Health Care Program the authors know what's coming and are insulating doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies from societal 'bad habits' that will continue to plaque health care. I will continue to reference this book and its future revisions to stay on track with my own health and that of friends who I don't wish to lose to this mind destructive matter.
