I was originally taking the active steps mainly for all the other
things queuing up to kill me! (And I've been concerned about the humanitarian and economic crises of obesity and type-2 diabetes across the world. I actually know far more about the causes and reversal of type-2 diabetes, which I'm not at risk of, than about Alzheimer's).
But obviously I learned quite a bit about the consequences of Alzheimer's from my father's suffering. I bought (and read) Amy Berger's "The Alzheimer's Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer's Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline" just in case. (I'm a compulsive reader!) Then last week I got the results from 23andMe, so here I am.
I've pre-ordered two more books: "The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Programme to Prevent and Reverse the Cognitive Decline of Dementia" by Dr Dale Bredesen (22 August 2017), and "In Pursuit of Memory: The Fight Against Alzheimer's" by Joseph Jebelli (25 January 2018). I think some of Bredesen's material is on this website.

It has a lot of great information including some of the diet topics you mentioned.
Thanks. Yes, I've had a look, and I've also found a number of interesting papers via the Science and Research forum. I'm noting how many gaps there are in general understanding, and (as expected) that sometimes there is disagreement about details. (For example, fats, alcohol, interpretation of lipids, etc).
Thanks for the pointers.
