Anecdotal evidence seems to highlight stress as a cause of Alzheimers but has there been any studies to back up this thesis? I don't know that it is possible to design a longitudinal study or a clinical study that would be free of bias or flaws.
What is left for the average person to do? Pop pills? Run away to Tortula? How can you lessen stress?
