520 3  By the year 2000 half of the people in the United States 
       were over the age of 50. By 2030, 70 million elderly will 
       account for 20% of the U.S. population. 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 
520 3  Here, Dr. William J. Tippett helps readers understand the 
       basics of how the brain works, and explains why engaging 
       in certain exercises may be helpful. He gives people the 
       tools to maintain, combat, and understand good brain 
       health. He also examines one of the most profound brain 
       aging related illnesses of our time, Alzheimer’s disease, 
       and provides detailed information on how this disease 
       affects the individual, as well as ways to protect against
       it and to alter its course even if it’s been diagnosed. 
       Lifestyle strategies to promote brain health are also 
       offered throughout. Readers will be fascinated by the way 
       the brain functions and ages, and the many methods 
       available to everyone to maintain better brain health as 
       they age
