Seafood Consumption Tied To Reduced Alzheimer’s Pathology and APOE4 Allele

Reuters (2/3, Doyle) reports that seafood consumption appears to be tied to reduced Alzheimer’s pathology in carriers of the APOE4 allele, according to an autopsy study published online Feb. 2 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Interestingly, even though seniors who consumed the most seafood had elevated levels of mercury in their brain, they appeared not to have suffered any adverse effects from it.
