The percentage of the population with Alzheimer s disease is significantly on the rise and by 2025 there will be a 45% increase in developed countries and a 215% increase in developing countries. Aging populations face many other issues involving cognitive decline. Building an Ageless Mind offers practical solutions, including specific directives to assist individuals in changing the course of cognitive decline as a result of aging and disease. The brain, our ability to think, and our self-concept are so very important to individual lives, and the desire to maintain robust cognitive function is the ultimate goal for anyone concerned about the aging mind."@en ;
