Good dietary practices may reduce Alzheimer’s risk in old age

July 26, 2017

Practicing healthy eating habits can improve cognitive function and reduce the risk for dementia later in life, according to data from four large population-based studies presented at the 2017 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference.

“Although the idea that a healthy diet can help protect against cognitive decline as we age is not new, the size and length of these four studies demonstrate how powerful good dietary practices may be in maintaining brain health and function,” Keith Fargo, PhD, director of scientific programs and outreach at the Alzheimer’s Association, said in an accompanying press release.
