It's important not to claim that crochet can prevent Alzheimers. So far, the scientific research knows of nothing that can prevent it. It is not even certain  what can delay it - there are hypotheses, but still little KNOWN, as it's an enormously difficult thing to prove as there are so many variables, and scant ways of controlling individual variables. It's important to refer to scientific literature. My mother died of Alzheimers, her ability to knit or crochet was one of the first things to go - almost a symptom. It's not fair to make claims that are unproven, although I understand the point you are trying to make. Please be mindful of the literature and not making false claims. There are so many around as people exploit people's fear and illnesses, it would be better to crochet to raise money for research!
