“The major hallmarks of Alzheimer’s Disease—neurofibrillary tangles, amyloid plaques, and brain cell atrophy—can all be explained by insulin resistance. A staggering 80% of people with Alzheimer’s Disease have insulin resistance or full-blown type 2 diabetes. The connection between insulin resistance and Alzheimer’s Disease is now so firmly established that scientists have started referring to Alzheimer’s Disease as “Type 3 Diabetes.”

Also, there’s an excellent infographic.

    With cardiovascular work, you will need amino acids from your body to repair damage (which is normal). The body only has so much of an amino acid pool – and this amino acid pool has to make choices. Amino acids that go towards cardiovascular recovery are not going to muscle recovery. The best predictor of how old you are going to live is muscle mass [1992 Study]. The number 2 predictor is strength. So it beats things like blood pressure and cholesterol profile, inflammation profile.
