Prevention of Memory Loss with Diet
Dr. Cyrus A. Raji of the University of Pittsburgh reported at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America on the ongoing results of the Cardiovascular Health Study—Cognition Study, which has been going on for 20 years. Patients who consumed baked or broiled fish at least once a week had larger brains on MRIs and a reduced incidence of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease, presumably due to increased levels of omega 3 fatty acids. Dr. Joseph Hickey, a neurologist from North Carolina who is also my friend, has noted memory problems and dementia in patients who have even borderline elevations of fasting blood sugars as well as minimal accumulations of toxic metals, such as lead, mercury and aluminum. An integrative physician can best help you implement a plan to save your brain.
