"The Alzheimer’s epidemic is growing, but you can fight back with a healthful diet rich in plant-based foods.


More than five million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and it's the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, research has suggested that lifestyle could play a role in whether or when we develop the disease.

Any chance you could give us a quick summary of the dietary markers for Alzheimer's? Finals are coming up and I just don't have the time to sit around and listen to podcasts at the moment.

My old golf buddy was a vegan and he died from Alzheimers.

Health is a lot, but veggies aren't a panacea.

I won't deny a healthy diet (not necessarily vegan) can skew stats in a good direction in some health issues, but you can't beat genetics or good/bad fortune.

Have you ever seen this quote by Hunter S. Thompson?

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

There's a lot of different ways to looking at life!

I;d love to see statistics about how many vegans get it compared to people who live on bad diets.
