David Smith, Emeritus professor of pharmacology at Oxford University and founder of the research project OPTIMA (Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Ageing) in his interview in the Daily Mail, says that millions have been wasted on drug research when prevention should be the way forward in tackling these brain diseases.
He is calling for a programme of research to look into all the factors that can contribute to Alzheimers including obesity and diabetes. He cites trials that have looked into the use of B vitamins and their role in preventing brain shrinkage and US and European studies that have researched the role of omega 3 fatty acids in reducing the risk of Alzheimer's.
