There have been a multitude of Articles and references within the Low Carb world linking Sugar to Alzheimer’s Disease. Many of the Authors refer to AD as Type 3 Diabetes.

Until recently there was no direct link established.

The following article appeared on Medicalxpress: Sugar’s ‘tipping point’ link to Alzheimer’s disease revealed.

For the first time a “tipping point” molecular link between the blood sugar glucose and Alzheimer’s disease has been established by scientists, who have shown that excess glucose damages a vital enzyme involved with inflammation response to the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

The underlying Study was published online in Scientific Reports on February 23, 2017.

So the myth that your brain only thrives on glucose has one more nail in its coffin.

One more reason to pass on Sugar.
