We eat for our future. A study recently published by the University of Eastern Finland suggests eating healthy foods in midlife could result in nearly a 90 per cent lower risk of dementia later. Researchers defined healthy foods as vegetables, berries and fruits, fish and unsaturated fats, and unhealthy foods as sausages, eggs, salty fish, sugars, and saturated fats.
The Alzheimer’s Association recommends eating certain foods for a healthy brain, including dark-skinned fruits and vegetables, nuts, and cold-water fish. A healthy, balanced diet is an important part of any wellness program.
