“Eating more meat and eggs lowers dementia risk in men,” by Alicia Lasek, McKnight’s LTC News
“Men whose diet contained more choline, a nutrient found in a variety of foods, had a 28% lower risk of dementia than those with a comparably low intake, a Finnish investigation has found. … Major contributors of choline in the American diet are eggs, meat, poultry, fish, dairy foods, pasta and rice. The recommended daily intake is 425 mg/day for women and 550 mg/day for men. Two hard-boiled eggs provide up to 300 mg of choline.”
