Healthy eating, daily exercise, reducing alcohol consumption, and not smoking not only lead to a longer life, but they can also reduce Alzheimer's risk for those with genetic risk factors.
Plant-based diets, such as the DASH diet and MIND diet, can reduce the risk of heart failure and ultimately decrease the risk of cognitive decline and dementia.
Close adherence to the MIND and Mediterranean diets delayed the onset of Parkinson's disease by up to 17.4 years in women, and 8.4 years in men.
Researchers believe their new study will provide a mechanistic understanding of how our microbiome and diets can impact the development of Alzheimer's disease. The study will aim to provide evidence of possible diet induced effects on gut bacteria, which could influence age associated cognitive decline.
