Klodian Dhana, MD, Ph.D., of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and colleagues evaluated 569 deceased with valid nutritional data, near-death cognitive tests, and full autopsy data.

After reviewing the global pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, the β estimate was 0.111.

Several authors reported having received consulting fees from companies.
