The epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease is increasingly linked to a Western-style diet rich in refined carbs. Potentially, this means that one could prevent the disease by switching to a diet low in carbs.
Here’s another new study that shows the tight correlation between high blood sugar levels and early symptoms of dementia:
A longitudinal study, published Thursday in the journal Diabetologia, followed 5,189 people over 10 years and found that people with high blood sugar had a faster rate of cognitive decline than those with normal blood sugar — whether or not their blood-sugar level technically made them diabetic. In other words, the higher the blood sugar, the faster the cognitive decline.
