The nine-year study published in The American Journal of Medicine involving nearly 2,000 people, led by Professor Qi Dai of Tennessee’s Vanderbilt University, showed that the risk of developing Alzheimer’s — a degenerative brain disease that affects a person’s memory, thinking and mood — was cut by 76 percent among those who drank fruit or vegetable juice more than three times a week.
76 percent? That’s a huuuuuuuge amount. Could staving off such a heartbreakingly debilitating disease really be as simple as drinking a few glasses of juice a week? That seems much too easy.
I’m just sayin’.

>I guess Gin ain't "juice", even though it has juniper berries in it, cause that was my Granddaddy's drink! He had alzheimers from the time I was about 17 until he died when I was 25. He was the man! I miss that dude. I guess today is nostalgia day, because all these posts keep taking me back to past times. As far as a simple solution. You are right, that can't be it, because it seemed to be somewhat heriditary, because his sister had it too, the entire time I knew of her existence.
>My grandmother died after suffering Alzheimers for 10 years. Now my best friend's mother is at the end, with the disease. It's a horrifying existance. My best friend, his sister and their aunt all live together and take care of his mother but he recently told me in secret that every morning when he wakes, he wishes she was gone. That's how horrible it is. Unfortunately it's a genetic disease. Hopefully they will create a vaccine sometime in the near future.
