Natural Chemical In Plants, Fruits and Vegetables Prevents Alzheimer's Disease

'A little-known but potent flavonoid called fisetin is difficult to obtain in sufficient amounts through diet alone. It's found in fruits and vegetables from strawberries to cucumbers and stops memory loss that accompanies Alzheimer's disease, scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have discovered. 

 In experiments on mice that normally develop Alzheimer's symptoms less than a year after birth, a daily dose of the compound fisetin -- -prevented the progressive memory and learning impairments.'
