STOCKHOLM -- Individuals who carry the apolipoprotein E [epsilon]4 allele that increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease may lower their risk to that of noncarriers through regular exercise, moderate fat intake, and low alcohol consumption, reported Tiia Ngandu at the 12th Congress of the International Psychogeriatric Association.
