A study published today by neuroscientists at Boston University School of Medicine suggest a theory: the gene may only increase one's risk if it is aggravated by chronic low-grade inflammation, which could come from countless things including high blood pressure, diabetes, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections.
She says the findings offer yet another reason to treat inflammation as a critical concern for our health, not leastto prevent heart disease, the biggest killer in the US and globally.
Qiu, associate professor of psychiatry and pharmacology & experimental therapeutics at BUSM, believes screening for and treating chronic inflammation with diet and exercise and medication - especially in ApoE4 carriers - may well be the thing that determines whether a person gets the disease or not.More on Alzheimer

Jaber said the other big revelation from the research is that fitness leads to longer life, with no limit to the benefit of aerobic exercise.More on Diabetes
