Is Dementia Preventable?

Inflammatory Diet Linked to Unhealthy Brain Aging and Dementia

According to Dr. Yian Gu of Columbia University and the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain in New York City, you can reduce your risk of dementia.

At the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in London this month Dr Gu presented a study linking an inflammatory diet to dementia.

Inflammatory markers on blood tests were linked to diets low in Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin E, vitamin D and vitamins B5 and B2.

Dr. Gu suggests that an inflammatory diet “is bad for both the brain and cognition”.
