    Alzheimer’s Genetics, Omega-3s and Brain Health - Dr. Hussein Yassine, MD

    Alzheimer’s Genetics, Omega-3s and Brain Health - Dr. Hussein Yassine, MD

    In this episode, we sat down with Dr. Hussein Yassine, Associate Professor of Medicine at Keck School of Medicine of USC.
    He is the director of the Yassine lab (www.yassinelab.com) and specializes in how changes in lipid metabolism and nutrition affect cognition and the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). The lab has an interest in studying how carrying the APOE4 allele, strongest genetic risk factors for developing AD, affects lipid metabolism, the response to the diet; combining basic science, clinical trials and brain imaging studies. 
    We discussed brain physiology and development, lipid metabolism in the brain, genetics, especially ApoE4 genotype and risk of AD, and his research on omega-3 fatty acids and prevention of cognitive decline. We hope you find the information helpful.

    Fraud and Fabrication in Alzheimer's Research

    Fraud and Fabrication in Alzheimer's Research

    In this episode, we discuss the recent allegation of fabrication in a highly influential research article on Alzheimer's that was published in Nature in 2006, which paved the way for more than a decade of research and more than 2000 papers citing that research. Does this mean years of wasted NIH funding and wasted thinking in the field?

    A Revolutionary and Empowering Approach to Preventive Medicine

    A Revolutionary and Empowering Approach to Preventive Medicine

    This conversation between Dean and Ayesha is about the essence of changing habits. How do we empower communities to succeed in preventing diseases and living a healthy and empowered life? 
    Often, blunt ideas and useless terms, such "motivation" and "moderation" are thrown at individuals. But real, lifelong change is a lifestyle, which requires planning, and an understanding of one's strengths and limitation.

Thank you!

I greatly appreciate the Sherzais ability to nerd out on the science of brain health and then present it to me in a way that I can understand. I value that they want to stick to the science and still give options for all of us no matter where we are in our health journey. Thank you for your dedication to promoting prevention options that every age and walk of life may benefit from. I look forward to each episode. Again thank you.

Current and Authentic Information

I’m so proud to be a part of this brain health community! The Doctors Sherzaid provide their audience with the latest research in a factual, honest, unbiased, easy-to-understand fashion. Their transparency lends to their authenticity. While they are forthcoming about the fact that they are “Whole-food, Plant Based”, they are never condescending or judgmental about those who choose an alternative way of eating. They truly care about the health of their audience and are open-minded with respect to new research and studies. They are willing to share the latest evidence, even when it doesn’t completely align with their lifestyle and I love them for it! I highly recommend becoming a part of their online program. In it you will find more information pertaining to brain health than on ANY other site on the internet. The best part is, they set aside time each week to answer your personal questions! BEST PODCAST, BEST INVESTMENT OF YOUR TIME! PERIOD.
