Modern Meat Processing and the Epidemic of Alzheimer's Diseaseby Murray Waldman, MD and Marjorie Lamb
It's widely accepted nowadays that memory loss comes with age. Alzheimer's currently robs at least 15 million people of their identity worldwide. This book makes the controversial claim that eating meat may contribute to the development of the disease....They present startling evidence that Alzheimer's may be part of a family of diseases linked to malformed proteins known as prions....and that mad cow disease and its human equivalent, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, other encephalitic diseases and Alzheimer's may have a common antecedent.

'Scientists have shown that prion diseases can be transmitted between species (e.g., from cows to humans), and that high temperature doesn't kill prions. This isn't a jeremiad against eating meat. Waldman and Lamb lay out their case in a measured fashion that many will find convincing and disturbing.' - PW.
