Q: What are the key open questions regarding Alzheimer’s disease?

A: I think the key issue today in dealing with the epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease is what can be done to prevent this disease, a disease for which there is no cure. The evolving data is clear: a high carbohydrate diet leading to blood sugar elevations is a powerful pivot point in the genesis of the disease. So the answer as to whether the disease can be prevented or not is clearly a strong and resounding “yes.”

Just take a look at this recent publication from the New England Journal of Medicine. We just have to broaden our educational pursuits as part of a public health effort to let people know that carbs are basically toxic to the brain.
