DEMENTIA & DIET MATTER: THESE FOODS RAISE ALZHEIMER’S RISK
Did you know that every 66 seconds, someone in the United States will develop Alzheimer’s disease? In fact, Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the country. While there is no cure yet for the disease, we do know food matters and that certain foods raise Alzheimer’s risk. On the flip side, diet is also one of the natural treatments for Alzheimer’s. And it’s ever-more important: a new study shows that a Western-style diet heavy on meat, sweets and high-fat foods is linked to higher levels of Alzheimer’s.
