Healthy Alkaline Eating Reduces Cognitive Decline


A healthy diet may reduce your risk for cognitive decline, according to a study published in Neurology. Researchers analyzed diet records and cognitive health tests from 27,860 men and women as part of the ONTARGET (Ongoing Telmisartan Alone and in Combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial) and TRANSCEND (Telmisartan Randomised Assessment Study in ACE Intolerant Subjects with Cardiovascular Disease) studies. Those who consumed the most fruits, vegetables, and whole grains had the lowest risk for cognitive decline after a 56-month observation period. This study hopes to shed more light on diet’s potential to curb cognitive decline.
