Dietary fat and the risk of Alzheimer's disease
It has become clearer and clearer that diets high in saturated fat and trans fats are associated with health problems. There are hundreds of studies that link diets high in these types of fats with heart disease and stroke. What about dementia? There is a very well designed study that does a connection between Alzheimer's disease and an increased intake of saturated and trans fat.
