It is believed that consuming high-fat dairy products, sweets and red meat which is associated with most Western diets can contribute to a high risk in developing Alzheimer’s disease.
There is a low risk rate when you try out traditional Indian diet. It is believed that traditional Mediterranean diet can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by half the risk associated with western diet.
What is common in traditional Indian diet is the high amount of veggies, fish, whole grains, legumes and low-fat foods that make up a meal. These foods according to studies conducted help to reduce the risk of developing age-related Alzheimer’s disease and even dementia.
In a recent study looking at the Alzheimer’s disease prevalence rate in a number of countries including Mongolia, Korea, Nigeria, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Cuba, Chile, U.S and Egypt over a 15 year period.
This study looked at how the diet in these countries contribute to the Alzheimer’s disease prevalent rate in comparison to other countries.
Findings from the study showed that the U.S were at a higher prevalence rate than all the other countries mentioned due to their diet which consists mainly of processed and refined foods.
It has been ascertained that to avoid being at a high risk of Alzheimer’s disease you need to reduce processed/refined food and red meat consumption.
You will also avoid other diseases such as kidney disease, type II diabetes, stroke and cancer.
