Bill Gates Tackles Alzheimer’s

Bill Gates’ Personal Defense Against Alzheimer’s?  “Lot’s of exercise”

In a recent interview CNN Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanja Gupta spoke with Bill Gates about his recent announcement that he is investing $50 million of his own money into the Dementia Discovery Fund.  Gates sincerely believes that we will find a treatment for the disease, and he is betting money on it.

In the interview, Gates reveals that he does have a history of the disease in his family and has seen the effects.  “That’s not my sole motivation, but it certainly drew me in.”

When asked by Dr. Gupta whether he (Gates) does anything in his own life in terms of warding off cognitive decline, Gates answered “Well, the recommendations that are beneficial are lots of exercise.”
