Researchers have found a blood test that could predict the chance a person will develop alzheimer's disease.

The new study identified ten blood fats that signal when brain cells are starting to degenerate. After several comparisons, researchers found the test was able to correctly identify those with memory problems ninety percent of the time.

Researchers not affiliated with the study say the results are intriguing, but larger studies are needed and a commercial test won't be available for years.
