47 million Americans will develop Alzheimer's dementia or mild cognitive impairment by the year 2060, the researchers warn:
According to researchers at UCLA, nearly 47 million Americans will develop either Alzheimer's dementia or mild cognitive impairment by the year 2060. The leading author of the study professor Brook-meyer says "there are about 47 million people in the U.S. today who have some evidence of preclinical Alzheimer's, which means they have either a build-up of protein fragments called beta-amyloid or neurodegeneration of the brain but don't yet have symptoms."
Many neurologists, medical professionals, and nutritionists believe that your diet and lifestyle choices could have a huge impact in prevention of many chronic diseases including Alzheimer's. The typical American diet (high in carbohydrates, sugar or toxic heavy metals like aluminum, lead or mercury) can significantly increase the risk of many chronic diseases like Alzheimer's.
Aluminum widely used in thousands of consumer products is a toxic neurotoxin:
Keep in mind that aluminum is a dangerous neurotoxin hidden in thousands of consumer products and food items such as skincare products, food additives and baking soda, vaccines and medications. Science confirms that dangerous substances like aluminum can cross the blood barrier, enter the brain and end up accumulating in the brain as we age.
Studies have linked aluminum to a wide range of chronic diseases like breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, dementia and neurological disorders. Many researchers believe that exposure to aluminum can cause cancer; even at 100,000 times lower level of what’s found in consumer products like antiperspirants. Thanks to our toxic skies and chemtrails, even our drinking water and the air that we breathe are contaminated with toxic heavy metals such as arsenic and aluminum linked to Alzheimer disease and Parkinson’s:.
We must invest on healthy nutritional diet:
The good news is that the MIND diet (a diet high in raw organic fruits and vegetables) can significantly lower the risk of many chronic diseases including Alzheimer's. A diet high in vitamin D3 and omega 3 fatty acids (DHA) can help to destroy the abnormal protein found in the plaque known as “amyloid –beta”. Foods high in vitamin B12 and vitamin D can also fight neurological diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Keep in mind that a diet high in glucose, in particular processed sugar and fructose, gluten, carbohydrates, red meat, butter, margarine, or processed cheese can significantly increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Americans spend almost twice as much per capita on healthcare compared to other advanced countries. As a result of a wasteful and profiteering health care system, the US spends about $2.7 trillion dollars a year (17% of its gross domestic product) on health care. We have to make healthy nutritional diet a top national priority and make fresh organic fruits and vegetables affordable and available for our communities. Otherwise, all of us as a community or individuals are going to pay a serious price.
