Abstract:The goal of my project was to find a way to help prevent Alzheimer's Disease. The question I asked was “Can vitamins and minerals assist in breaking down beta amyloid?” The answer to my question would be found by discovering which vitamins and minerals could assist in preventing Alzheimer’s disease.
