Can Alzheimer's be prevented via other more tested methods than resveratrol?
My own two cents is that inflammation is the likely primary culprit behind Alzheimer's and, interestingly enough, resveratrol attacks inflammation:
For example, read this very interesting and recent article on how they shut off and turned on the beta amyloid accumulation via inflammation processes in a 2009 study:
So imo - and I admit I'm not a researcher - it is very likely that you can prevent Alzheimer's without taking resveratrol. Now resveratrol may prove to be the Fountain of Youth, but I'd rather wait a few years and see how it shakes out.
Of course, not everyone is going to agree on supplements, so I'm just stating how I see it for better or worse...
First off, I want to thank you for making this site, again.
when I was in medical school, I was assigned clinic duties to help treat indigent patients. I was just a student and I would question the doctor about we didnt do any preventive care?
we would simple treat the disorder, not educate the patient and send them on their way.
Diabetic? take more insulin, come back when your foot has to be removed, etc
This always bugged me, even when I was doing rehab for my TBI, there was no resource to use to fix me, I finally found a few places that had scientifcally proven what they dohttp://www.centerformusictherapy.com/abouthttp://www.facebook.com/ReintegrativeHealth
Currently, I have now found your site and I'm swamped with information, backed with science, how to get my youth back and I'm so very thankful.
I found stuff relating to Alzheimer
Reversal Of Alzheimer's Symptoms Within Minutes In Human Studyhttp://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/01/080109091102.htm
This new study highlights the importance of certain soluble proteins, called cytokines, in Alzheimer’s disease. The study focuses on one of these cytokines, tumor necrosis factor-alpha(TNF), a critical component of the brain’s immune system. Normally, TNF finely regulates the transmission of neural impulses in the brain. The authors hypothesized that elevated levels of TNF in Alzheimer’s disease interfere with this regulation. To reduce elevated TNF, the authors gave patients an injection of an anti-TNF therapeutic called etanercept. Excess TNF-alpha has been documented in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with Alzheimer’s.
I agree that Alzheimer's can be avoided/treated with other ways not a supplement, either change in lifestyle eating or using your mind more. I'm not sure which, I know food is a huge drug and I'd like to think diet can lower inflammation. Which I read on this site it can.
I hate eating broccoli, I an drink it..

I've been reading about how horrible meat is, you must understand I love meat, and May 2010. I did the Big Texan 72oz challenge(http://bigtexan.com/free72.html
) but when I read how horrid saturated fat is and been shown to decrease blood flow and stiffen blood vessels. I am a big eggwhite eater now.
