According to the research done at the institute, a balanced diet which is rich in all nutrients is an absolute must if one has to avoid the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease. Similarly, research findings at the institute indicate a strong relationship between the onset of the disease and other life style related diseases such as type 2 diabetes and hyper tension. According to the research by Dr. Michael Mullan, control of these lifestyle diseases can help in controlling the onset of Alzheimer’s disease to a large extent.
