“Western Diet Identified as Risk Factor For Alzheimer’s Disease, Scientists Warn,” by David Nield, ScienceAlert
“A new review of 38 previous studies from the last five years identifies the Western diet pattern as a risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s in mild-to-moderate cases of the disease. On the other hand, the Mediterranean diet, the ketogenic diet, and diet supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and probiotics appear to protect against the disease, but only in those mild-to-moderate cases. … Based on the research, the way that dietary choices affect inflammation could be key here: Western diets high in saturated fat, sugar, and salt might be putting our bodies under extra stress, which somehow makes us more vulnerable to dementia.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
Instead of doing more puzzles to delay dementia, maybe consider less fast food.
