This is #2 in my series of Blogs on #Alzheimer'sDisease (AD). This has been a medical interest of mine since 1990.
This article, written by Megan Brooks, appeared recently in Medscape - Dec 19, 2017: No Magic Bullet to Prevent Late-Life Dementia.
Some points of note from my perspective:

This will be the 1st in a series of Blogs on Alzheimer's Disease. This has been a medical interest of mine since 1990.
If you ever wondered by Alzheimer has an apostrophe, it is because the disease is named for a German physician, Alois Alzheimer
( https://www.alz.co.uk/alois-alzheimer ) whose clinical work in the 1st decade of the 20th century identified an 'unusual disease of the cerebral cortex'.
The work in this recent article:
A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of The Effect of Low Vitamin D on Cognition
J Am Geriatr Soc. 2017;65(10):2161-2168.
concluded: "Observational evidence demonstrates low vitamin D is related to poorer cognition; however, interventional studies are yet to show a clear benefit from vitamin D supplementation. …… lifespan studies are necessary to depict the optimal timing and duration in which repletion of vitamin D may protect against cognitive decline and dementia in aging, …..”
This is of particular interest because of the now recently confirmed errors made in the calculation of recommended daily amount (RDA) for Vitamin D.
Happy to discuss this.

With the coming Holiday Season, we will all overeat, overdrink, overindulge. Don't beat yourself up too much if this is unusual for you. If this is regular behaviour, then you need to think seriously. The image below is busy, but 2 Takeaways:
1. Healthcare costs for obese people are 25% higher than non-obese people.
2. Life Expectancy for obese people is 10 yr. less than non-obese people.

We hear a lot about home well the economy is doing. Certainly the stock market is making money for corporations and brokers, but are people overall benefiting? That can be debated. However, data clearly shows that things are about to change for the worse, and tougher times are probably ahead. What signs are there? Glad you asked.
This graph plots monthly unemployment rate (UR) over time with recessions highlighted. Since 1954, whenever UR falls below 5%, an economic downturn soon follows.
