  1. Well, to decrease Alzheimer’s, I read you need to decrease your intake of aluminum.
    Aluminum + Brain = Bad(Alzheimers)
    I suggest no canned drinks and other canned products that need to be broken to open, leaving small particle to land in your food. Also no aluminum pots, heating them can cause the pots to drgrade leaving the pot to disperse some into your food. (which is why stainless steel is better. (less Al))

  3. I want to write a grant someday for Dr. Kawashima to do a controlled experiment on one of my classes – does playing Brain Age everyday improve the academic performance of elementary school students as compared to students who don’t play?
