Oh come on - if it's not extreme how can you brag to everyone about you doing it?!

I misspoke apparently. The 89% was a risk level increase, not the percentage of carbs consumed, my mistake. After thinking about it, it would be impossible to get that percentage from a study like this.

The article does mention this.
Our most well-respected medical literature reveals powerful relationships between various lifestyle choices and risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers from the Mayo Clinic, for example, revealed that deriving most of dietary calories from carbohydrates was associated with an 89% increased risk for either mild cognitive impairment, or full-blown dementia. In their study, those consuming the highest levels of fat actually demonstrated a 44% reduction in risk.
There was also this link to this article which I didn't even look at before.
