I heard a radio programme that said that there was a link between diet (notably fat) & altzheimers. Do you think that this could apply?

I dont believe so either
They are always looking for the WAY OUT there things that may cause AD
They need to really do some good research
Thanks for posting

Personally, I have heard aluminum cookware, antiperspirants, lack of mental stimulation (ie. didn't read or work puzzles, or listen to radio enough). and now Fat. If six people lived in one household, as a Farm family, and one mother, and one of the sons developed Alzheimers, and nobody else in the family although they all ate exactly the same foods, I would look at genetic links. That seems to be at the heart of the matter. Like so many other mental affectations, like BiPolar illness, these seem to be passed down through the genes. One of my sons has ADHD and his Grandmother and a couple of cousins have ADHD, I'd be looking for genetic factors, exacerbated by life stressors, use of street drugs being the first which pops into my mind.

I have not heard any of these being the root of ad
I am still glad you posted and got responses however
and now know that 99% believe they are not tru and or are just wives tales
