Eating less cuts Alzheimer's symptoms

This seems counter-intuitive to me, but apparently there is some evidence that mice live longer if they eat less
A study in mice suggests a lower-calorie diet can help trigger the production of a protein that protects the brain from the disease, said researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.

So, following that logic to the end...

If you starve to death you won't ever have Alzheimer's.

Sounds reasonable to me.

One of the bad things about Alzheimer's is you'd forget if you already ate or not..
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

But the cool thing about Alzheimers is that you can hide your own easter eggs.
