Is there ANY correlation? I have no idea. COULD there be? Maybe - who knows - but I don't know of any legit research that backs up that fear. But I do think that in general, especially as we age, we could cut a lot more wheat (and therefore gluten) out of our diets and be better off.

It appears to be in countries with longer life spans, but I was surprised to see Austria so low on the list.

I'm surprised to see how low Mexico is. Now if some one wants to give their opinions WHY ... on the list. The U.S. is right up there and we have maybe the highest drug consumption of all the countries, so I'm curious .. yet many people who die from dementia have other health issues that contribute to their deaths.

Could be anything from eating cuitlacoche to under reporting.

You find the data questionable. Ok. Why?

No guessing game, I just wonder about the whole list in general. No big deal. Maybe others will comment, it does NOT matter, I just made a comment, I don't use emogees -- and no explanation necessary about yours. So many question data on this group.

I've seen studies that support the general data on that list.

I seen explanations on why more developed countries have higher dementia, from a longer life span, to eating too much meat and processed foods and not enough grains, to our greater hygiene/sanitation some how making us more susceptible while people exposed to more germs are less likely to get dementia.

I'm sure if I keep looking I while find more studies / hypotheses
