Hi, today is world health day. Doctors say diet cannot undo Alzheimer’s disease but the right diet may help brain health and slow memory loss.
A 2014 study at the University of Florence in Italy notes that nutrients in plant foods such as green tea, olive oil, red wine, spices, berries and herbs are associated with reducing diseases such as Alzheimer’s that are related to the clumping of proteins called amyloids.
Some research suggests that a low carbon hydrate diet may improve memory function as well as insulin resistance (a precursor to diabetes, when blood sugar has difficulty entering the cells) says Dr Richard Isaacson, the director of Alzheimer’s prevention clinic in New York. ‘What we’re funding in the studies is that not one dietary approach fits all says Isaacson. ‘You have to do multiple things at once.’
‘Switching to that diet when someone already has money loss may have positive effects in terms of memory function or biomarkers that indicate more optimal brain health.’ And cocoa rich in anti-oxidants may boost brain health as well. An 8 weeks study involving 90 elderly people with some memory loss in Italy, those who daily consumed the highest dose of cocoa powder containing the highest amount of antioxidants had improved memory and lower insulin resistance compared to those who drank cocoa with fever antioxidants. They also did better on assessing brain function and verbal skills.
The next step:
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
