saturated fat related to Alzhiemers?
I just watched a segment on the CBS Morning Show regarding brain health. A Dr. (Sorry didn't catch his name) has written a book titled "Power Foods for the Brain." This doctor claims saturated fats found in meat and dairy are damaging to our brain, and may lead to Alzhiemers disease. We should be eating 4 food groups; fruit, veggies, whole grains, and beans.
As someone who is dealing with a family member with this condition, this info concerns me. I eat mainly paleo with dairy. I feel great. Plenty of energy, loss of belly fat, ect. But I don't want to trade my brain health for it!
This flies on the face of what we believe paleo does for us. I am not a nutritionist by any means. Can some of you weigh in on this?
