AI detects Alzheimer's disease SIX years early - with 100% accuracy in small study

Alzheimer's can only be confirmed after a patient is dead and diagnoses rely on process of elimination, subjective analysis and a few lab tests
Most people live four to eight years after diagnosis
New AI system from University of California, San Francisco can detect subtle brain changes linked to the disease six years ahead of diagnosis on average
Every single brain scan the AI flagged for Alzheimer's in a first, small sample belonged to a person who had gone on to develop the disease
Earlier detection would mean more effective treatment for sufferers

Your morning cup of joe may prevent Alzheimer’s

One thing you can do to potentially prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s is drink coffee. Recent research has found that certain levels of caffeine may help reduce beta amyloid levels in humans. Beta amyloid is a protein fragment that creates the plaque on the neurons, which eventually causes them to die. The study was done on mice but showed that caffeine levels in coffee could rid the body of these proteins. It had the ability of reducing one’s Alzheimer’s risk by as much as 50%.

According to Alzheimers.net, another study showed that drinking three cups of coffee per day could also slow mild cognitive impairment in older adults. Mild cognitive impairment is essentially the stage before full dementia. Drinking coffee appeared to help slow, and sometimes even stop, the symptoms from worsening into dementia. The researchers concluded that caffeine was what slowed these symptoms and delayed or prevented a full diagnosis.

The study involved women, and it appears the sweet spot for Alzheimer’s prevention falls somewhere between two and three eight-ounce cups daily. If you’re more of a tea drinker, it’s five to six cups of black tea daily.

Apparently, a simple, at home test for Alzheimers is the peanut butter test... it's effective, super cheap, and after you
use this diagnostic tool you get to eat it.
