Don't waste your time on this book.
.
The authors are obviously aware of SOME of the research -- but contradict themselves frequently, and even suggest that despite NO GOOD SCIENCE showing that coconut oil might help dementia -- fail to clearly and firmly advise against trying it.
.

Why is coconut oil dangerous for dementia? Because not only is there no published science showing benefit, it IS HARMFUL for heart health. There is no way to distinguish in a living person, whether their dementia is actually alzheimers or vascular dementia (resulting from cardiovascular disease often via TIA's and strokes). Since most Americans over age 50 have evidence of cardiovascular disease, the science is unequivocal -- saturated fat, (which coconut oil is rich in) promotes vascular disease progression.
.
This book is peppered with similar errors and would likely confuse those willing to implement a dietary strategy.
.
A MUCH BETTER BOOK is:

The Alzheimer's Solution.
