I thought it was a list of organs that was harvested from Anne Heche but I questioned the liver.

Alzheimer's is a physical disease with protein plaques which form on the brain surface. Mental tricks only help you operate better with it but they do not prevent nor treat the disease.

Is that the menu a great white shark imagines when it sees an orca?

Being healthy in general tends to stave off many illness, both physical and mental.

I'm not convinced about the alcohol abstinence. If you look at the Blue Zones where people live longer and also tend to have less dementia and Alzheimer's, only 1 of them are substantially teetotalers - Loma Linda, California, which is mostly populated by Seventh Day Adventists. They also abstain from tobacco and recreational drugs. They do, however, promote vegetarianism and take at least a full day of rest, and are usually heavily involved in their local churches - one or more of their other behaviours may be bigger factors for Alzheimer's prevention.

The other Blue Zones in Sardinia, Greece, and Japan do not abstain from alcohol.

So, take the alcohol thing with a grain of salt. Eating more plants and less meat, though, does seem to be a strong commonality among the Blue Zones.
