Currently, about 5.3 million people in the US have Alzheimer's Disease. Considering the devastating effects of the disease on both victims and their families, as well as the staggering expenses, a preventative that reduces the risk of getting the disease by 40 percent seems a near miracle. Such a preventative does indeed exist, according to results of a new study. The preventative isn't a vaccine or pill, in spite of the fortunes poured into research trying to find such a palliative. Rather, the preventative is diet – specifically, the Mediterranean diet. According to the authors of the study, "Epidemiological evidence linking diet, one of the most important modifiable environmental factors, and risk of Alzheimer's disease is rapidly increasing."
