Can diet reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease? Yes, say researchers at the Rush University Medical Center, even when the diet is not followed meticulously. It’s called the MIND diet, and it reduced risk up to 53% w strict adherence and 35% in those with moderate adherence. The diet is based on 10 foods that you should eat, and five that you should not. The good ten are green leafy vegetables, other vegetables, nuts, berries, beans, whole grains, fish, poultry, olive oil, and wine. The five to avoid are red meat, butter, cheese, fried / fast food, and pastries / sweets. More information at Rush.edu.
