According to Professor David Smith, Professor of Pharmacology at the University of Oxford (Daily Mail, 10th December 2013) the world has already spent an astonishing £25 billion on drug development with no success on even slowing down disease progression, let alone curing it. Although admittedly a pharmaceutical treatment would be desirable for those who have been diagnosed with dementia, he and more than 100 leading international experts on dementia have called for a major shift in direction towards one of prevention which would require controlled studies based on reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer's through improved diet and lifestyle choices.
A controlled study by Professor Smith showed that brain shrinkage can be cut by 90% in people with memory problems using vitamin B supplementation.
To quote Professor Smith, "The G8 governments can give a lead by prioritising funding for research on preventive measures.

This statement, signed by over 100 scientists from 136 countries, calls upon the governments of the G8 countries to make prevention of dementia one of their major health aims; it was written by the Head of Food for the Brain's Scientific Advisory Board, Professor David Smith, and published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease in December, 2013. Dementia (Including Alzheimer's Disease) can be Prevented: Statement Supported by International Experts.
