Diet May Slow Alzheimer's Disease

Mercola on Understanding Alzheimer's
The intro from mercola.com:

"Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. This fatal and progressive condition destroys brain cells, resulting in memory loss and severe thinking and behavioral problems (aggression, delusions, and hallucinations) that interfere with daily life and activities.
"The cause is conventionally believed to be a mystery. While we know that certain diseases, like type 2 diabetes, are definitively connected to the foods you eat, Alzheimer's is generally thought to strike without warning or reason.
"That is, until recently.
"A growing body of research suggests there may be a powerful connection between the foods you eat and your risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia, via similar pathways that cause type 2 diabetes. Some have even re-named Alzheimer's as "type 3 diabetes.""
It's a good read -

  1. The most common form of dementia, is Alzheimer's disease. Over time Alzheimer's disease gradually gets worse. I think highly educated individuals have a reduce incidence of Alzheimer's disease because higher education has an effect on the level of cognitive function, memory, and thinking skills.
