    I saw a recent article which stated they could find almost no references to Alzheimer's or other cognitive impairments during the days of the Roman Empire which suggests that it's a product of modern lifestyles. One of the things we have is easy access to large amounts of inexpensive sugar.

    The poorer the neighborhood, the more high sugar items on the shelf. Little kids chugging sodas with 77 grams of sugar per bottle.

    in the EU, they no longer have terms like dementia and Alzheimer’s. They reference it as diabetes type three. Science is finding out that a form of diabetes may be in fact, what is causing people to suffer from Alzheimer’s . I.e., probably avoidable with healthy eating, and a healthy lifestyle. I love America, but there is still a lot we could learn from other countries when it comes to our diet, toxins and how corrupt our pharmaceutical industry is here. It’s really bad.

    Totally agree, and on top of that, our(USA) agribusiness complex is fastly becoming embarrassing. This country is flooded with all kinds of ‘stuff’ we can shove down our throats, but stroll thru any sizable grocery store and there is 1 or 2 aisles at most labeled ‘health foods’, what the heck is in the rest of the store?

    What’s kind of funny, but not funny is my doctor told me one time if you want to get diabetes in 10 years, go over to the American diabetes foundation, homepage, and start with their breakfast he’s like if you eat what they recommend every day for about 10 years he’ll get diabetes. It’s loaded with Sugar. Lol I don’t even get me started on the food pyramid. About every five years they tell us eating this type of food is going to kill us, then, five years later, they say it’s the healthiest thing you can eat and back-and-forth it goes. Evidence is now showing that a carnivore diet might actually be the healthiest for us humans. We just told that eating red meat would kill us a few years ago?
