I'd agree with most of that...except the olive oil and the salmon. Humans can get sufficient intake of the necessary fats, oils and omega-3 fatty acids they need from whole food, plant based sources--sources that won't muck up their arteries and damage their endothelial cells.

Quote

When we lose a loved one to Alzheimer's, we naturally begin to worry that we, too, might develop this frightening disease. Neal Barnard, MD, knows that fear. Both of his parents and all four of his grandparents had some form of dementia. His research is leading him to conclude that their fate doesn't have to be his.

New Blood Test Detects Alzheimer's Risk

Alzheimer's disease has no cure, and drug treatments offer minimal help. Many experts believe that progress in drug research is hindered by the fact that although the disease is thought to begin long before symptoms become obvious, it can't be diagnosed until the disease has progressed. An earlier diagnosis might provide time for an effective intervention.
