There is a case study of TDP-43 pathology being exacerbated by apoE4. The link to the Washington University report is talking about tau, which leads to the neurofibrillary tangles in AD. There is a theory of tau seeding, where it spreads from neuron to neuron in a prion-like way. ApoE4 is thought to increase tau phosphorylation, leading to tangles.
I think the evidence for foodborne aspects of this is remote, but you never know.
