Healthy Aging: Increased Awareness of Paleo Diet Implications for Alzheimer’s Is a Must

The weight loss and short-term health gains experienced by many Paleo devotees can obscure the diet’s longer-term positive health benefits. The greatest rewards for dedicated Paleo adherents may come well after the initial excitement wanes. As they head into their 80s and 90s (and beyond), devotees have every reason to expect abnormally healthy “platinum years.” Sadly, they may watch their non-Paleo friends and family succumb over time to common “normal” (and supposedly age-related) illnesses like: Obesity and metabolic syndrome Cancer Diabetes Heart disease Stroke MS, ALS, and Parkinson’s disease Alzheimer’s and dementia   Lengthy periods of morbidity and disability often precede death with these conditions.
