Wellness Wednesday: Alzheimer's Documentary, New Peanut Alergy Guidelines, Wellness Research News

U.S. Department of Agriculture

Since 2000 parents have been advised to avoid feeding peanuts to children, up to 3-years-old in some cases, to avoid a potentially life-threatening peanut allergy. New evidence now shows that exposing children to peanuts early on, even as young as 4 months, can actually help prevent the development of peanut allergies. Today we'll discuss this, a new PBS documentary about Alzheimer's and the latest in wellness research.

If you have questions or concerns about memory loss generally or Alzheimer's and other dementias specifically, you can call the Alzheimer's Association 24-7 Helpline at 1-800-272-3900 or go to www.alz.org/centralohio.
