                        It is not the Popcorn but the chemical
             butter flavouring used in the popcorn
           It is also used in snack foods baked
               foods and pet foods diacetyl can pass
       through the blind brain barrier and
               and contribute to  Beta  Amyloid Plaque
             which  is a maker for  Alzhemier's Disease.

well with the genetically modified strains of corn today, alzheimers will be the least of ones worries when ingesting corn. Always make sure to try and get local or organic.

Thanks for the useful info! I think we should as a principle, avoid any junk. However, talking of Alzheimer's specifically, a cure may be far-fetched, but prevention surely is not.
I came across a very informative link while researching on the ways o prevent the disease. Here, take a look: http://www.helpguide.org/elder/alzheimers_prevention_slowing_down_treatment.htm

Apart from these things, there are certain foods that can prevent the disease from occurring. If not then, atleast, these foods can help delay the occurrence to quite an extent: Berries ( pure acai berry supplements are available online almost everywhere these days), raspberries etc. I read at a lot of places that Mediterranean foods are also very effective...
