Hunger Protects You from Alzheimer's

Huh?

A new study reveals that the feeling of hunger itself may protect against Alzheimer’s disease. A study of mild hunger pangs in mice suggest that related hormonal pathways may be as important to the much-discussed value of "caloric restriction" as actually eating less (And if YOU want to eat less, you need to get Anne Strieber's famous diet book!)

Hormonal signals may be the middlemen between an empty gut and the perception of hunger in the brain, and manipulating them may effectively counter age-related cognitive decline. Researcher Inga Kadish says, "This is the first study, as far as we are aware, to show that the sensation of hunger can reduce Alzheimer's disease pathology in a mouse model of the disease."
