Alzheimer's Disease is one of the most disheartening diseases of our generation. Characterized by a progressive loss of memory, it affects around over 43 million people world, however less than 25% of the cases actually get diagnosed.
For decades, scientists have been tirelessly working to figure out the cause of Alzheimer's disease and develop a cure. While that cure still eludes scientists, researchers from Brock University in Ontario, Canada, have linked a higher likelihood of the onset of Alzheimer's to obesity, and a high fat/sugar diet.
Based on the research conducted, the mice that consumed a diet high in fats and sugars had significantly more inflammation and cellular stress in areas of the hippocampus known to be associated with the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
So based on the results of the data collected during the research project, it's clear that there is a link between the progression of Alzheimer's disease and a diet that is high in fats and sugars.
