Diet beats medicine...again.

From this article: "A 3-month diet comprised of 70% fat improved cognition in Alzheimer’s disease patients better than any anti-amyloid drug that has ever been tested."

In English: Eating a (perfectly safe) high fat diet is a better treatment than any man-made drug known (that may have dangerous side-effect).

Alzheimer's recently has been called "type-3 diabetes." We don't know if it's the chronic high blood sugar or the chronic high insulin (I suspect insulin), but the standard American diet is driving a serious epidemic in brain-related disease.

There's no money in telling people to eat a ketogenic diet, but there is lots of profit in developing new drugs to treat disease, so you'll never see this promoted by anyone who has a stake in the medical industry.

In fact, I argue that a low inflammatory, low sugar, low insulin diet is better than a treatment, it's a prevention. When do you feel your sharpest? Is it after Thanksgiving dinner after gorging on all kinds of high-carbohydrate foods? Your brain doesn't work well in that milieu, and chronic exposure is probably detrimental.
