Can Intermittent Fasting Prevent Alzheimer’s?

Intermittent fasting is the practice of going long periods of time throughout a 24 hour period without consuming any calories.

Generally, one that follows an intermittent fasting program will have an 8 hour window during the day to eat and then will go 16 hours without eating.

For example, one might have breakfast at 11 am and finish dinner by 7 pm and then not eat anything again until 11 am the next day.
