Stop Eating C.R.A.P. to Reduce Your Dementia Risk?
We all like our sweets, snacks, and other indulgences. I’m no exception.
There is increasing evidence that age and genetics are not the only primary risk factors for developing Alzheimer’s and other dementia. So are your environment (e.g., pollution, chemicals, metals, toxins, etc.) and lifestyle choices and behaviors (e.g., poor sleep, high blood pressure, social isolation, smoking, alcohol abuse, lack of physical and mental activity, etc.).
For example, have you heard sugar called “The Sweet Poison”? That’s because it adversely affects our health in numerous ways, including our brain’s cognitive wellness. Alzheimer’s is often referred to as Type 3 Diabetes. By limiting your intake to only a few grams daily, you will have amazing results and benefits, including for your waistline and that brain fog!
So, for a quality of life as we age, avoid processed grocery and fast food items with a lot of added sugar, salt, and bad fats, and minimize white pasta, potatoes, and rice. Look for good fats, protein, and carbs instead, such as lean meats, fish, and olive oil, nuts and legumes, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains.
