Moran's memo: Defeating Alzheimer's Disease

Every 68 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease – a devastating and irreversible brain disease that slowly destroys an individual's cognitive functioning, including memory and thought. Alzheimer's currently affects more than 5.2 million people in the United States and more than 35.6 million worldwide. As the population ages, the number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's after age 65 will double every five years, while the number of individuals 85 years and older with this disease will triple by 2050.

Slipping into a new habit this year

I began my year of walking more right after Thanksgiving. I live in a very walkable neighborhood in Great Bend. My house is just blocks from most of the things I need, as well as my job. There are restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment of all sorts, clothing stores, gift stores, grocery stores, banks, doctors and dentists offices, schools, convenience stores--you name it, it's probably within walking distance of where I live. And for me, walking distance is about a half-mile. That's six blocks, for simplicity's sake. Not even enough to work up a sweat.

Gameday Funeral Salad a healthy alternative

Earlier this month, a group of five Tribune employees, me included, took up the Club 1 Fitness Challenge, and are working on changing the food we eat to develop healthier lifestyles. Okay--we're on a diet. But you're not supposed to say "diet" anymore, right? But we're working on coming up with good tasting, easy to make dishes. With this in mind, I'm extending that to the meals I make my family and friends.

New take on a classic remedy
