Make Your Brain 7.5 Years Younger!?
A person is diagnosed with this disease every 65 seconds.
It kills more people every year than breast and prostate cancer combined.
And it’s the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.
You might have guessed that I’m talking about Alzheimer’s disease.
As bad as those numbers are, with no cure in sight, they’re projected to get a LOT worse before they get better.
Your BEST BET is to make sure you never get Alzheimer’s to begin with – and researchers have identified a way to do just that.
It’s common knowledge that you can eat your way to a healthier heart… but a healthier brain?
Yes, you can do that, too.
I’ve written a lot about various individual foods and nutrients that are tied to a reduced risk of neurodegeneration or an improvement in cognitive function.
Now, a study published in The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association shows that following a specific diet can greatly reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
It’s called the MIND diet, and it’s essentially a hybrid between the Mediterranean and Dash diets – two eating plans scientifically proven to lower the risk of heart disease, heart failure, and stroke.
These diets had been shown to improve cognition but had NOT been shown to slow neurodegeneration.
MIND is an acronym for “Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay” – a diet specifically designed with a healthy brain in mind (pun intended!).
When researchers studied over 900 seniors, they found that there was a 53% decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease in people who rigorously followed the diet, and a 35% decreased risk in those that moderately followed it.
Just as exciting, those who strictly followed the diet had cognitive function that was similar to someone 7.5 years younger!
Yes, you can eat your way to a younger brain AND drastically cut back on your risk of one of the most dreaded incurable diseases!
So what does the MIND diet include?
The rules include eating lots of green leafy vegetables, berries, nuts, beans, wine, whole grains, fish, poultry, and olive oil.
And the no-nos include fried food, pastries and sweets, butter and margarine, cheese, and red meat.
I’m on board with everything except for the dairy red meat. You can have plenty of butter and red meat – just make sure it comes from organic, grass-fed cows.

Pain is a catch 22. When you’re in pain, you don’t want to move. But when you stop moving, you put yourself on a fast-track to disability. And that means you can’t do much moving even if you wanted to. But even if you’re dealing with arthritis pain, spending just 10 minutes a day following...
It’s a side effect of diabetes that most people don’t give much thought to: It can absolutely destroy your brain. The blood vessel damage caused by high blood sugar levels affects the brain’s white matter, the part of the brain in which nerves communicate. When these nerves become damaged, it can lead to cognitive impairment...

You never have to wonder whose interests the pharmaceutical companies have in mind. It’s never yours.

Scientists can spend all the time they want in a lab (under artificial light) trying to concoct a cure for cancer.

All drugs come with a long list of side effects and a fair share of warnings. Don’t take this drug with that one. Don’t eat grapefruit while taking Lipitor. Don’t drink alcohol while taking Xanax.
