Dementia Alzheimer’s and Nutrition – What’s the Connection?

Some of you may know that I read Dr. Mercola.  I think he is a very smart man and his web site shows the amount of research he and his staff have done.  An incredible amount of research regarding every health or disease issue that has become rampant within our society.

I am providing a link below so you can take a look at what he has to say about dementia/Alzheimer’s and nutrition.  I am not surprised by this information.  It is time to pay more attention to what you are eating.

Here is a little exert:   In one study3 from UCLA, researchers found that rats fed a fructose-rich and omega-3 fat deficient diet (similar to what is consumed by many Americans) developed both insulin resistance and impaired brain function in just six weeks….  Shocking?

It is not shocking to me.  What is shocking to me is that food and nutrition does not have a part in your health plan.  For most people, a health plan consists of; how much is the deductable, are regular office calls covered, what percentage is covered by insurance, what type of life support do I want in the case of catastrophic illness, etc., etc.  That is not a health plan nor is it health care.  It is sick care.

Before I get to high on my soap box….find the link to the article below.

And here is a link to the whole article.
