Modest Seafood intake Decreased Alzheimer's Risk

  Even a single seafood serving a week had a neuroprotective benefit against the development of neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid deposits in people that carry the apolipoprotein e4 risk gene for Alzheimer's. The same is NOT true for those that do not carry the APOE e4 gene. 
  Interestingly, that same population studied also were found to have increased mercury in their brains WITHOUT an adverse effect pathologically.
