Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Recommendations of an independent panel are suggesting how to go forward with a research agenda for Alzheimer’s disease.
Buckholtz: The major recommendation was that more research needs to be done.
Narrator: Dr. Neil Buckholtz at the National Institute on Aging explains, the panel evaluated and analyzed various reports.

Narrator: Low-grade evidence shows weak associations between many lifestyle choices and reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease. Get details from the website consensus.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
