For many years, it was thought that Alzheimer's disease was a consequence of aging with a genetic propensity to obtain it. In other words, there was nothing you could do to prevent it.
However, new understandings about how the foods we eat affect the brain have many links between the disease and our diet and are called Alzheimer's Disease – Type 3 Diabetes.
In this video, I will discuss how Alzheimer's is linked to a pre-diabetic state called insulin resistance, and why in the long run that might be good news.
