Dispelling Brain Health Misunderstandings: A Response to Joe Rogan and Max Lugavere

This episode is dedicated to clarification of a podcast discussion between Joe Rogan and Max Lugavere, two popular influencers who have a large audience. They discussed Alzheimer’s disease and brain health in general, and some of the information that was shared was not accurate, which can be really harmful.

This is by no means an attack on Rogan or Lugavere. After listening to the conversation, we think Lugavere may not be quite familiar with the data regarding brain health, and it would be important to set the record straight and share the evidence with people and let them decide what’s best for them.

Having seen thousands of patients with dementia, whether it’s Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal lobe dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, and others, we feel it’s our responsibility to share evidence based data as opposed to feel-good, self confirming anecdotes.
