The New York Times recently ran an article claiming that dietary supplements can’t help against dementia or Alzheimer’s. Their “evidence” was a study showing that some people who were given Vitamin E still developed Alzheimer’s.

Saying that supplements can’t help because one particular nutrient didn’t  prevent dementia in one study is poor reporting.  It’s the equivalent of saying that because one medication was found not to cure pneumonia, no medication can.

And claiming that because one antioxidant didn’t help ––– in a time in which the free radical theory of aging (which viewed antioxidants as a solution to “fix” the aging process) has been largely discarded by serious researchers ––– shows how out of touch the reporter, and that particular paper, are. 

The truth is that there is evidence that what we eat and the supplements we take very likely can make a difference. Many people are following a protocol similar to this, hoping that it may help:
