Yesterday, I received the terrible news that someone close to me has been diagnosed with the beginnings of Alzheimer’s. There is no cure, I am 1300+ miles away, and hopeless. Over the next few weeks I will be studying the disease to learn more about it. I have found that my diet, or a variant of it, is an optimal diet for those seeking to prolong mental acuity. I’m looking forward to learning more about that. I have personally seen someone in the final stages of ALZ. The devastating reality for the afflicted and the visible toll it takes on the caregiver and loved ones is something which scars me to this day. It is a dark day today. I don’t have much else to say.
