Eat Smart to Lower Alzheimer's Risk

Many unproven “miracle cures” for Alzheimer's disease have popped up online as frustration with available medical therapies has increased.

That might be because after years of research, there's still no cure, and more than 99% of drugs in the research pipeline have failed in the past 15 years.

Fortunately, there's new research suggesting that lifestyle habits may reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

It turns out that eating foods that deliver a good dose of choline — a nutrient necessary for the formation of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, as well as for liver and muscle function and heart health — may protect your brain.

But we have a bone to pick with the observational study of 2,500 men ages 42 to 60 recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

It did find a 28% reduction in dementia risk in those who had the highest intake of dietary choline compared with those with the least intake. But the guys got most of their supply of this nutrient from meat and eggs.

Unfortunately, data indicate that choline from meat and eggs increases inflammation and leads to brain cell death.

As we always advise, it’s best to get red meat and eggs out of your diet and get choline and other nutrients from healthier sources.

You can get what you need daily (550 mg for men, 425 mg for women) from poultry, fish, cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower, nuts, beans, and 100% whole grains.
