This is an article that shows both metabolic syndrome and dementia seem to have the same risk factors. I wonder....could it be the food? Or maybe a better question is, how could it NOT be the food?

I don't know, but I think some sort of sulfite solution. Or what they spray (or used to) salad bars with.
I know this because one of the first times I went to Whole Foods, my husband (who has been butchering meat with his family since childhood) took one look at how 'pink' and healthy the meat looked, and said, "Lisa, you think that meat is not sprayed for it to look like that?" I said, "of course it isn't, this is Whole Foods!-Everything is organic." That was back in the day, before I got more educated.
That very day, still thinking the stuff was safe, I bought lamb chops, and 'fresh' scallops, and frozen fish from the deli. There is a thread here about it, but sufice it to say that I got really ill from all of it. (on 3 separate occasions)
To top it off, as we were picking out what we bought, I watched some guy behind the fish counter spraying everything--back then, I just thought it was something 'safe.' Boy, did I have a lot to learn.
After I got sick, I wrote them and told them I had seen them spraying the fish and meat with something. They replied and said they do NOT spray with anything--and IF someone had, then it had to be just water.
Well, who do I trust? My 'lying' eyes, my reactions, or their lying emails? Bet you can guess.
I have not bought any of their deli meat, fish or frozen fish since.

Citric acid in water is being sprayed on everything from meat to produce. It is considered natural, of course, but it contains glutamate residues from the way it is processed from corn...not fruits. It's being used instead of sulfites in some cases.

So Deb, do you think that salad bars, meat in grocery stores and restaurants, and produce in markets are all being sprayed with citric acid? I mean is it common practice? Guess I still have a lot of learning to do.

No, I'm not saying that all grocery stores or restaurant do that, but I suspect some do. It's a good idea to ask. But citric acid is being used in many processed foods like canned tomatoes and some lettuces are dipped in it before packaging to make it stay fresher longer.
