Subject: Mediterranean Diet found to slash risk of dementia by 35%
According to a study by the University of California following a Mediterranean diet could significantly reduce the risk of dementia. Other studies seem to agree that a diet low in meat and dairy but is rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, beans, nuts, and healthy fats significantly reduce the risk of cognitive decline. There are some studies showing that there is marked improvement in cognition when a person strictly adhered to the diet as well as decreasing inflammation, reducing obesity, healthier lipid panels and such.
- A Mediterranean-style diet is one low in meat and dairy but rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, cereals, beans, nuts and ‘healthy’ fats like olive oil.
- Patients with greater diet adherence were also less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those with lower adherence
- The researchers also noted that the diet scheme helped improve a large number of risk factors associated with cognitive decline.
