There is probably no disease that is as scary as Alzheimers.  A study done on 5,000 Dutch men and women offers real hope for avoiding the disease.
It tracked men and women whose average age was 67.  Those who ate 4 ounces of fish (which is one serving a week) had a 70% lower rate of Alzheimers than the non-fish eaters.   The theory as to why these results occurred is because of something called Omega-3 fatty acids which have anti-inflammatory properties.    

        You can simply eat one serving of fish (cold water fish are best, e.g. salmon) per week or include Omega-3 supplements in your diet.
