Let me begin by referring the reader to my published website specifically the podcasts. https://www.docsam.ca/sbh-website/Podcasts/Podcasts.html
Note: When I view the second podcast the one on Brainpower and click on more, the reader will see the plans I have for this podcast. Let me copy a portion of this podcast.
Your brain directly and indirectly controls the function of every system of your body. Aging of the brain is the number one cause of dementia,discomfort, disability, depression, and death in the elderly. In Canada alone, 8% of people age 65 and 35% of those over the age of 85 are affected by some type of dementia. By the middle of this century (2050), it is estimated that 50% of the elderly (group over age 65) will be older than 85. The medical costs of just treating dementia (estimated around 30 billion in 2014) in the elderly will skyrocket to over 300 billion by 2050 and likely to bankrupt the healthcare system. Prevention is our only savior.
