Science believes that this onset of Alzheimers/dementia is caused by the fact that people with Down Syndrome have extra genetic material on chromosome 21, but they are still researching why.
There is evidence that diets can contribute to the slowing of Alzheimer's, but there is very little research confirming the correlation of Down Syndrome, diet and Alzheimers. Current research states to eat foods with antioxidant properties, such as berries and "brain-boosting" foods such as dark leafy greens. Most recently, the MIND Diet has had the most promising results.
