Diet, Alzheimer's & The Nigerian Paradox


"The Nigerian Paradox" is about low rates of Alzheimer’s in Nigeria, despite dangerously high rates of "the Alzheimer’s gene" (ApoE4). Does Nigeria's diet hold the key?

  1. Yes we can reduce our risk of Alzheimer's through our diet, however it isn't about cholesterol. There may be a different explanation for why the Nigerians have low levels of Alzheimer's. Yes it is their diet. Their diet is most likely high in silica and secondly their diet doesn't expose them to high levels of aluminum. Someone needs to do look at this. Research has reached a tipping point and Aluminum is the cause of Alzheimer's.
