Alzheimer's disease often begins with what appears to be simple forgetfulness, but it wreaks much more havoc over time, destroying speech, comprehension, and coordination and causing restlessness and dramatic mood swings. One in three people over the age of 80 will be its victim, and most of us sit back and hope we won't be one of them. The right diet may delay the onset of the disease or lower your risk by as much as 40%. So, isn't a diet change worth it?

One French study showed that drinking three 125-millilitre (4-ounce) glasses of wine per day reduced the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by a whopping 75 percent. Cheers to that!
