According to the National Institute on Aging, Alzheimer’s disease is the number one cause of dementia in older adults, and the 7th leading cause of death. A recent SciTechDaily article discussed new research published last week that showed a link between people with a higher blood DHA level, and a 49% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s, compared to those with low levels. The study, conducted at the Fatty Acid Research Institute (FARI), suggested that taking extra dietary omega-3 DHA could slow the development of the disease.
