A states that a Mediterranean diet can help cut alzheimer’s risk. The study was conducted on almost 2000 people averaging 76 years of age.
“It seems that this diet is [health] protective,” Scarmeas said. “Taking into account that this diet is protective for other conditions such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, obesity and a series of cancers, it seems to make sense to follow this diet anyway, and the diet may also protect from Alzheimer’s disease.”
This type of diet totally makes sense since the types of foods include fish, fruits, olive oil, legumes, and cereal. Eating right never hurt anyone so eating these types of foods should have positive benefits.
