Change in Diet Could Prevent Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease affects millions in the US alone, but no cure is known. Keeping a strict diet could help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, however, according to researchers from Columbia University.

As reported by Dr. David Liu at Food Consumer, using a Mediterranean-style diet can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s in individuals age 65 and older by up to 38-percent.

The dietary pattern was featured with high amounts of salad dressing,nuts, fish, tomatoes, poultry, cruciferous vegetables, fruit, and dark andgreen leafy vegetables and low amounts of high fat dairy products, redmeat, organ meats and butter.

Before any dramatic change in diet, be sure to consult a doctor.
