Cutting the Risk of Alzheimers by 40%

A study reported by Reuters suggests that diet can cut the risk of developing Alzheimer's by up to 40%.

A diet rich in olive oil, nuts, fish, poultry and certain fruits and vegetables may have a powerful effect at staving off Alzheimer's disease, researchers reported on Monday.

People who ate nutrients specifically selected for brain health had a 40 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease compared with others, Yian Gu, an Alzheimer's disease researcher at Columbia University in New York and colleagues found
"Diet is probably the easiest way to modify disease risk," said Gu, whose study appears in Archives of Neurology.
