Battling Bad Alzheimer's Genes.
Many scientists agree five molecules are known to affect or cause Alzheimer's disease. The potency of these molecules is linked to environmental factors such as diet and lifestyle. Researchers at Tel Aviv University's Department of Neurobiology have discovered data about one of these five molecules (which many believe to be the most significant), APOE, created by the apolipoprotein E.

APOE comes in two forms, a "good" APOE gene and a "bad" APOE gene, called APOE4. APOE4 appears in 50% of all Alzheimer's patients, and in 15% of the general population.

In a standardized environment, researchers introduced three different kinds of diet: a normal diet, a "bad" diet high in cholesterol, and a "good" diet high in fish oil. In preliminary results, the researchers found that a diet high in omega 3 oils and low in cholesterol appears to significantly reduce the negative effects of APOE4. Apparently, because APOE is a lipoprotein, it is known to be influenced by the good oil found in fish. 

"The main take-away message here is that good diets can alleviate the effects of bad genes. Of course nutritionists have had this general idea for a while, but it's nice to be able to show that this approach can be applied to specifically counteract the negative effects of Alzheimer's disease-related genes," said the lead researcher.
