If this is true, then why hasn't Alzheimer's been cured already?

 

 

 

 

 


@Anonymous032819 @This is a small observational study. Much further investigation is necessary. Moreover, this study did not look for Alzheimer's, it looked for overall cognitive decline and dementia.Not all dementia is Alzheimer's.

@roster @It's just new information. It's just providing the impetus for much more research before any conclusions can be drawn.

I’m pretty sure simply cleaning up one’s diet - eliminating sugars and processed/fake foods - will actually do a better job than the drug. Most modern day diseases are caused by the modern fake foods most people consume.

Don't know if I agree with that. I have nothing to base what we went through  with anything else.  ( Both were involved).

I hope that's true since I've taken Metformin for decades! 

 

Probably giving up sugars and "whites" will do a person's body and brain more good than any diabetic medication ever will.
