Calorie restriction in non-human primates may prevent and reduce Alzheimer's disease neuropathology

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2006-09/tmsh-cri091506.php

A new study directed by Mount Sinai School of Medicine extends and strengthens the research that experimental dietary regimens might halt or even reverse symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). The study entitled "Calorie Restriction Attenuates Alzheimer's Disease Type Brain Amyloidosis in Squirrel Monkeys" which has been accepted for publication and will be published in the November 2006 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, demonstrates the potential beneficial role of calorie restriction in AD type brain neuropathology in non-human primates. Restricting caloric intake may prevent AD by triggering activity in the brain associated with longevity.

The other study was on mice, but this is on monkeys... no doubt there will certainly be benificial effects for humans too.

I think the problem with this is that it seems too unbelievable... I mean cutting calories reverse or halt this disease?

But that is the case and has been shown for many years now, around 70 years infact. The protein that gets upregulated in the brain is SIRT1, and is present in all plants and animals, so its very likely that cutting calories would have a big impact for Alzheimer's disease in humans.
