The NYTimes has an interesting article in the opinion section suggesting that Alzheimer’s could be a form of diet-induced diabetes (‘type 3 diabetes’, they call it). It’s far from definitive at this point, but what IS clear is that eating sugars and carbs has more downsides than upsides. Really no upsides, actually, just downsides! But that’s a subject I’ll be covering more in this blog in the coming weeks and months.
In the meantime, you can read more over at the New York Times.
