I think that's distinctly possible. I also think the lifetime of , well ..living, and surviving, in some cases , takes a toll. As we get older we must use our brains, not pickle it...
OR a little pickling and and a little thinking.. works too.
Umm but it is likely your children could have similar issues . Having skipped your wife so far, I'm hoping you all keep a track, in real time. Umm.. it can only be a good thing.
BUT JUNK FOOD is a killer... to young and old... I never eat it.
Well a Subway a couple of times a year , and Fish and chips about the same.
I had a Wara Sushi TakeAway one afternoon recently, and I swear ( 3 dimsims) I'll never eat from there again.
OK so It took me 15 mins to get it home BUT eeuw…
So cheap so enticing.. tasted like YUK.
Dementia is a lifestyle/diet disease, not hereditary at all. What is hereditary is lifestyle and diet, so the seeds are sown with upbringing and continuation of a crap diet throughout life. That's why children are now getting it and all you have to do is look at the diets of their parents and their own, to see the truth.
It's the same for just about all illnesses, they all stem from lifestyle and diet choices, to day you can include noise, air and water pollution. Urban humans ingest at least a teaspoon of plastics into their bodies daily because of their never ending use of plastics for everything and they even cook and store food in them, so it's natural their bodies and brains will become effected over time until they no longer function properly.
Yet the science says, every plastic when subjected to higher temperature changes, produces toxic gases and chemicals, including oestrogen. This is creating many species to mutate in water ways and on land, including humans and because for some insane reason humanity doesn't believe they are animals, they take no notice of any science which asks them to change to a better way. It's just more of the same and it won't effect me insanity the vast majority live by.
I have a long term friend who was diagnosed with bladder cancer almost a year ago, he was told if he stopped smoking gave away fast food, drunk pure water and exercised by doctors, he would survive. He may lose part of his bladder, but would be alive and reasonably well for a long time.
All he listened to was that he would be alright, did nothing but complain about what was happening and continued to smoke. I gave him a number of scientific articles which showed the worst thing you can do with bladder cancer, is smoke and drink rum and coke. Now he has started palliative care and will be lucky to last another few weeks, yet he is still in denial and blames everyone else for his problems, but like everyone else, refuses to take responsibility for his life choices.
Human mental and biological health will continue to deteriorate until society becomes totally fractured, that's if nature hasn't put a stop to human ideological idiocy and denial, by removing the nature destroying disease called humanity.
My wife's father and grandmother both grew up on farms and grew their own food for their entire lives. My father in law retired from an insurance company, but he kept a 1/2 acre garden until he was about 84 years old using his father's 1953 Ford tractor with all of the implements. He was very frugal and rarely went out to eat. A lot of their meat was also home grown. My father in law and his mother both died from complications of Alzheimer's.
My parents both lived and worked in the suburbs and ate out often because they were too busy to cook at times. They are very mentally sharp and none of their family has ever had issues with dementia. My dad was a carpenter and his work was very physical and he stayed in excellent physical shape because of it. When I was growing up, I went to the gym with my dad 3-4 nights a week to play basketball. Maybe physical activity has something to do with it. My dad played basketball up into his mid 50s with the youngsters. My father in law worked as a computer operator in an air conditioned office his whole career. He only exercised when he was tending his garden.
Exercise has a lot to do with mental and physical health and there have been studies which have shown dementia occurs more frequently in those who don't do much exercise. Those surveys which were made in the 1980's, also showed the eating of diaries and red meats contributes to the onset of dementia, as did ultra processed foods.
Dementia is a long term problem, you don't just get it, it takes decades to develop and sedentary lifestyle are major contributors. When you add the crap junk diet the majority consume, it's a perfect storm for creating debilitating illness and disease.
I'm in my mid 70's, run every morning, exercise, do weights and walk heaps at home and when it urban areas, park my car and walk everywhere, even if it's a klm or so from where I am and even further back to the car. In fact make the effort to make sure I have a walk to every where I go. Totally different to those I know my age and decades younger, where just about everyone drives, even just a couple of hundred metres. Have watched kids being driven to school, just down the road and eating junk on the way there and back. That's a wonderful way to develop good health and fitness in children and be a responsible adult, which have yet to see in this day and age.
If dementia was hereditary, why is it increasing, even in the young and as for not knowing what cause it, that's been known for decades. But governments, the pharmaceutical industry and corporate world suppress any evidence that will divulge the truth around what pharmaceuticals and fast food does to the human body and brains chemical balances.
We went from clean organic foods to chemically saturated junk foods. That's aligned with the growth in cancers, mental instability, dementia, osteoporosis, organ failure, heart organ deterioration and viruses. Denying there is no correlation, is no different to all the other things humans are denying, which are real and coming to get them.

"They're cheap to produce, designed to last for a long time without spoiling, convenient and engineered to taste delicious.
But ultra-processed foods are increasingly being recognised as unhealthy — even aside from the high salt, fat and sugar content that most of them usually have.
Last month, researchers showed a cause-and-effect relationship between ultra-processed food and weight gain.
A couple of weeks later, two more studies linked these foods with disease and death.
According to the NOVA system, examples of typical ultra-processed products are:
Sweet or savoury packaged snacks; ice-cream, chocolate, candies (confectionery); mass-produced packaged breads and buns; margarines and spreads; cookies (biscuits), pastries, cakes, and cake mixes; breakfast 'cereals', 'cereal' and 'energy' bars; 'energy' drinks; milk drinks, 'fruit' yoghurts and 'fruit' drinks; cocoa drinks; meat and chicken extracts and 'instant' sauces; infant formulas, follow-on milks, other baby products; 'health' and 'slimming' products such as powdered or 'fortified' meal and dish substitutes; and many ready-to-heat products including pre-prepared pies and pasta and pizza dishes; poultry and fish 'nuggets' and 'sticks', sausages, burgers, hot dogs, and other reconstituted meat products, and powdered and packaged 'instant' soups, noodles and desserts."
That's only a small number of ultra processed foods and just about everyone consumes them daily. One of the most destructive supposed foods, is diary products and they are in everything single bit of processed foods you stuff yourselves with daily.
