Why Enhancing Metabolic Health Could be the Key to Preventing Alzheimer's Disease

Why Enhancing Metabolic Health Could be the Key to Preventing Alzheimer's Disease
by neurologist Dr David Perlmutter was posted on the ApoE4.info Facebook page yesterday (Feb 25, 2024) and has attracted a good amount of interest, so I thought I’d share it here.

He starts by reviewing recent Alzheimer's research and pharmaceutical treatments aimed at amyloid plaque removal that have had limited effectiveness with respect to cognitive decline and yet come with potential risks. Then he explores metabolic factors in Alzheimer’s. The video is about a half hour long and easily understandable.

I gleaned the papers (but not the articles) that he cites in the video and list them below if anyone is interested in researching beyond the highlights he presented:
