MIND Diet Related To Prevent Alzheimer’s
If you follow the news you know there has been a large increase of elders suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Many are now asking “how can I prevent Alzheimer’s? The fact people are living much longer lives certainly has something to do with it. This is also a reason why we are so far behind in not only finding a cure but how to prevent Alzheimer’s entirely. Many studies are being conducted to assist in prevention and while nothing is guaranteed, a study from Rush University Medical Center shows there can be some prevention by one particular diet.
The diet is called, of all things, MIND which stands for Mediterranean Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. The MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center.
