Does This Food UP Your Dementia Risk?
Ten million people are diagnosed with dementia every year.
You don’t have to be one of them.
Every day, researchers are uncovering new ways to reduce your risk of this dreaded disease.
A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition adds another big risk factor to the list.
This is one you definitely want to stay away from.
Red meat has been villainized by the media and health organizations for years.
But I never let that affect how much I enjoy a big, juicy steak.
You see, red meat in its natural form—meaning the meat of healthy animals fed a grass-fed diet—is great for you.
What’s NOT great for you is meat that comes from mistreated animals, confined to a feedlot and force-fed grain, fillers, and antibiotics.
What’s also NOT great for you is processed meat.
This includes deli meats, hot dogs, ham, pepperoni—basically any meat that is preserved by salting or with chemical preservatives.
Past studies have shown that eating processed meat contributes to cancer—especially colorectal cancer.
And now another study has shown how devastating it is for your brain.
For this study, researchers looked at data on more than 500,000 people aged 40-96 to look at the connection between various types of meat and dementia risk.
They determined that consuming just 25 grams of processed meat per day increased the risk of dementia by 44 percent.
But get this.
Eating unprocessed meat—like beef, pork, and veal—was tied to a 19 percent REDUCED risk of dementia.
This study highlights what I’ve been saying all along.
Meat isn’t the bad guy.
What people DO to meat—and to the animals where the meat comes from—is the real problem.
The moral of the story is don’t be afraid to eat meat.
Just make sure it’s in its most natural form possible.
P.S. Wouldn’t it be great if you never had to worry about getting dementia? Well it might actually be possible. Click here now to learn how.
