So do you think that it may be the case that if dad has AD one is generally less likely to get it than if mom has it?

The literature overwhelmingly supports this view. Those with affected mothers are considered to be at higher risk.

Re: Contradictory info. re. prevention of AD

Hi, I have just started the reading and research and have come across some contradictory prevention measures. Many of you have mentioned mini fasting and a keto diet and it has also come up in a couple of books. However, the book by Elwood Cohen, M.D. speaks of hypoglycemia of a risk factor and dia...

Cell death is needed in multi-cellular animals, and how the death occurs, is important. Autophagy being a method to possibly pr...

Re: 4/4 female mid40s

My story: It is hard when the people you know change in front of you. My dad is in the final stages AD. He started going down hill about 5 years ago, right after my mom died. The first to go were the unhappy memories. Mostly he was okay, laughing off stuff he didn't remember. My mom's mom lived to ...
