bagelsMindBodyGreen.com reveals the link between a diet high in grains and Alzheimer’s disease and how good fats can reduce your risks….so swap that bagel out for some grass-fed meat, fish or coconut oil!
“Researchers at the prestigious Mayo Clinic recently published a report showing that a lower carb, higher fat diet is associated with a 42% risk reduction for dementia, the most common form being Alzheimer’s. More recently, the New England Journal of Medicine showed us that even small elevations of blood sugar translate into increased risk for becoming demented. And blood sugar relates to dietary choices. Higher carbs means higher risk for dementia.”

“Reducing carbohydrates and ensuring you do 20mins of exercise a day will help reduce your risk plus…add more fat. Fat is a super fuel for the brain, protecting and nourishing delicate brain cells. Good choices include extra-vrgin olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed beef, and wild caught fish.”
