Atherosclerosis and stroke are two leading causes of age-associated disability, dementia, and death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Center for Health Statistics recently reported that Alzheimer¡¯s Disease has surpassed diabetes as a leading cause of death. Alzheimer is now the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. This book discusses the roles of oxidative stress, mitochondria failure, and cellular hypoperfusion in the context of Alzheimer Disease. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )

“This incredible book is a compendium of information on the Photovoice method from a global perspective. It is very readable, and clearly documents the effectiveness of Photovoice as a method of research and empowerment in communities. This methodology also has a clear theoretical base of feminist theory, critical theory, and use of photography as a method. The first chapter is a clear explanation of the Photovoice method and has excellent appendices on the methodology of using this community based qualitative research. The following chapters detail the practical use of this method worldwide, in Mexico, and in the United States. It is clear that Photovoice has impacted many communities in the world and is change agent to impact policy makers. Reading this book will benefit practitioners, students, and academicians.” – <strong>Dr. Steven Granich, Lock Haven University, Pennsylvania, USA</strong>
