Strong Heart, Sharp Mind
STRONG HEART, SHARP MIND presents a cutting-edge, science-based program that teaches readers how to develop the habits and lifestyle practices that improve both heart and brain health. Readers will learn how they can prevent or forestall both the nation’s number-one killer–heart disease–as well as the affliction Americans fear most: Alzheimer’s disease.
Joe is one of the longest-living survivors of coronary bypass surgery (44 years and counting!) and renowned neurologist Marwan Noel Sabbagh, M.D., one of the world's foremost researchers in the fight against Alzheimer’s, employ the latest science and recommendations from other leading-edge thinkers and practitioners, to help readers optimize the connection between cardiac and neuro health—a nexus that until recently has been overlooked as a key to wellness and longevity.
“[Piscatella and Sabbagh] show what’s good for keeping your heart pumping keeps your memories and passions alive. They give you a really great plan to follow. This book can help many and hopefully will help you and yours for years to come.”
