The Coming Alzheimer's Epidemic?

Provocative post by NYT good guy Mark Bittman on research finding more reasons to believe Alzheimer's is actually Type 3 Diabetes--caused by eating too much junk food and other....junk.   Of course, not all on board but he claims proof is building.  Of course, only two types of diabetes recognized now.  But the surge in Alzheimers would make sense if tied to 1) diabetes 2) poor eating habits and obesity...
If the rate of Alzheimer’s rises in lockstep with Type 2 diabetes, which has nearly tripled in the United States in the last 40 years, we will shortly see a devastatingly high percentage of our population with not only failing bodies but brains.
