Alzheimer’s is a progressive, degenerative memory loss disease that affects thinking, language and behavior. Newly released information suggest two different Alzheimer’s links involving cholesterol level and insulin.

Dr. David Samadi explains new evidence pointing to the association between high cholesterol and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
