Is There A Relationship Between Your Diet And Alzheimer's?

Alzheimer's: Is There A Relationship Between 
Cognitive Decline And Your Diet?

There is an old saying "you are what you eat?' Hence, "Is there a relationship between Alzheimer's and your diet?

In a recent article in the Bloomberg News titled New Research: We May Be Looking At Alzheimer's All Wrong  the author of the article suggest that current research on Alzheimer's, both academic and pharmaceutical , is fixated on treating the final stages of Alzheimer's and as a result is placing there focus on a protein called beta amyloid

Conversely, the Mayo Clinic suggests that research should instead be focused on a substance called tau proteins. According to some researchers this is the real source of cognitive decline and memory loss. 

When asked to comment on this divergence Life Choice's CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND said,   

"In a simple explanation the tau protein stabilizes the structure within the nerve cells that the cells need to divide, carry substances, (transport nutrients/food) for support. If this protein becomes abnormal, it will form twisted fibers inside of the nerve cells and destroy them, which causes various neurological diseases by the misfiring of neurons, the electrical impulses become blocked and messages can’t get through.

But we should go deeper to what causes the tau protein to form in the first place, prevention is a must.  A diet consisting of low saturated fat and low glycemic index (glycemic index is a measure of how fast a food releases its sugars into the blood) has been shown to improve mental performance. 

Eating a diet containing low saturated fat and foods with a low glycemic index increases cognitive abilities when compared it to a diet high in saturated fats and with high glycemic index foods, (again sugar is the real culprit)"
