Alzheimer’s is a near-inflammatory disease. It’s known that individuals with high levels of cellular inflammation 25 years before any diagnosis of dementia are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s. Also in age-matched elderly individuals, those with Alzhemier’s and dementia have twice the AA/EPA ratio as those who have normal cognition. If you want to reduce Alzheimer’s, I would suggest following an anti-inflammatory diet for life.
