In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re honoring Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month with Dr. Rudolph Tanzi. He’s a renowned microbiologist who has researched, studied, and written about Alzheimer’s disease for nearly 40 years. Along the way, he’s discovered several Alzheimer’s disease genes, including all three early-onset familial Alzheimer’s genes.
He’s also developing therapies for treating and preventing Alzheimer’s disease using human mini-brain organoid models of the disease and working to identify novel genes associated with Alzheimer’s and autism spectrum disorders.
“You're trying to put out a forest fire by blowing out the match,” Dr. Tanzi says. “The forest fire's neuroinflammation. These early genes taught us about the triggers, the matches, the brush fires. It's too late to stamp those out. But now, all the newest Alzheimer's genes we're finding, over a dozen of them, tell us how to stop neuroinflammation.”
Today you’re going to learn about brand new research that is upending what we think we know about Alzheimer’s and how we’ve been treating the symptoms of the disease for decades.
