This week, Meaghan and Marta discuss the very real and rather heartbreaking topic of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Though it's a sad and all too relateable topic for both M&M, they wanted to learn more and better understand this pervasive subject.

Topics:
-the Three Things you need to diagnose something
-why Alzheimers and Dementia are such a popular topic of research right now
-Brain Food and what you can do to lower your risk of Alzheimers

Also discussed are some very cool studies and TED Talks found while researching this topic. If you're so inclined, you can check out these fascinating resources below:
