Coconut Oil for Alzheimer's
Can coconut oil help fight against Alzheimer's?
This video from CBN discusses how coconut oil may hold the key to slowing down Alzheimer's as well as other diseases and conditions caused by insulin resistance such as diabetes, dementia, Parkinson's, ALS, multiple sclerosis, and autism. We know that insulin resistance is caused by eating too much sugar.
In a healthy brain, glucose is used as fuel, but in a person with Alzheimer's insulin resistance causes the brain to no longer be able to use glucose as fuel which causes the cells in the brain to die. It is thought that coconut oil provides an alternate fuel source for the brain in the form of ketones.

It's fascinating how healthy foods may help prevent or possibly even reverse diseases that the medical community has been fighting for years, and on the flip side, how scary is it that the evidence keeps pointing to the assumption that junk food may be the cause, or at least a contributing factor, of most of the diseases of our time. Given that most Americans live off of junk food we should all be paying attention to the evidence.
Everyone should take insulin resistance very seriously. Eating and drinking sugar in the current amounts most Americans do is practically guaranteeing a greater number of diseases in our future. I don't propose that we outlaw soft drinks or candy bars, but what I do suggest is that individuals take responsibility for their own health and begin to watch what they consume on a daily basis. It's scary how many people throw away their health for sugary snacks and drinks.
