In 10 seconds? Research shows that eating a diet filled with vegetables, nuts, berries, legumes, fish, olive oil and whole grains could be better for our brains and lower the risk of dementia as we age.
What’s the story? Dementia is one of the leading causes of disability in Western populations affecting around 6 million older adults in the US alone and, without a cure, rates will only continue to increase. However, we might be able to reduce our risk of dementia by changing our diets. Although dementia is not recognized as a disease, it reduces our brain’s ability to make decisions, think clearly and remember things.
