People who ate plenty of fish, tomatoes, poultry, cruciferous vegetables, fruits, dark green and leafy vegetables, and salad dressing and who ate limited high-fat dairy products, red meat, organ meat, and butter were 38% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
The study authors pointed out that the dietary habits most protective against developing Alzheimer’s are consistent with a Mediterranean diet. This matches up with previous research by this same group, which found that following a diet consistent with the Mediterranean style of eating might protect against Alzheimer’s disease too.
