Here are the top ten articles for the Alzheimers Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Can Diet Prevent Alzheimer’s?
When you consider a lifetime of eating, humans tend to eat a lot of unhealthy compounds produced by a high heat cooking style. Think of your love affair with milk, cheese and backyard barbecues.

2. How to Calm Alzheimer’s Agitation
Agitation, a nervous kind of restlessness, afflicts many Alzheimer’s patients – this means their caregivers and family members absorb as well as deal with the fall out. A new study claims Celexa can help. I also present some non-drug alternatives.

3. Don’t Stress About Mid-Life Stress
A Swedish study which has followed 800 women since 1968 has found a link between mid-life stress in women and the increased risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease. Stressors like divorce, death of a loved one and caregiving tend to overwhelm women in midlife. The same probably holds true for men.

7. Subjective Cognitive Decline
An emerging field of research in Alzheimer’s is centered on the personal reporting of the patient regarding his own cognitive impairment known as “subjective cognitive decline.”

8. Walking May Ward Off Alzheimer’s Disease
New studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association assert that sticking to a walking regimen at midlife and beyond can ward off Alzheimer's disease or at least delay its onset.

9. How to Show Alzheimer’s Patients Respect
One essential quality lacking in today’s Alzheimer’s care is a genuine respect for the patient. The diagnosis of cognitive impairment carries the stigma of “losing your mind,” “senility,” or “being empty headed.” Here are some tips to restore dignity to the cognitively impaired.

10. Cope with Alzheimer’s and Holiday Stress Combined
The holidays are stressful for people who are in peak performance. For people afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers the holiday season might seem overwhelmingly difficult to navigate. Here’s how to cope:
