Interesting article, one more reason to lay off the junk foods:
Is Alzheimer's Type 3 Diabetes? - NYTimes.com
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
i can think of more than a few people who need a little extra prodding to ease up on their SAD and lean toward ancestral health a little more, and this article should push them way over the edge.
That's probably the reason why Ketogenic diets are showing significant benefits in halting the progress of Alzheimers and in some cases partial reversal of symptoms, once the coconut oil craze hits there'll be a word wide shortage.
Loved this and shared it through Facebook.
I shared it with my family also. Just got a message from my sister:
you sent this to me already, don't you remember?
65lbs gone and counting!!
Fat 2 Fit - One Woman's Journey
My one issue with this article is that it lumps the "type 3 diabetes dementia/Alzheimers" in with "obesity related health costs"
But from what I've seen Alzheimers and dementia often affect those with poor dietary habits who may have avoided obesity as a result.
Obesity is not necessarily a marker for the poor dietary habits that will lead to "type 3 diabetes" and the failing mind.
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Very interesting and makes sense!
