Release the pressure of consistently creating new quality content every week with the Health scoop.

Clients and patients want to stay sharp and witty and avoid dementias like Alzheimer’s disease, right? But, what does the science say about “brain healthy” diets?

A recent study looked at what people ate and then followed up with them for years to see who eventually developed Alzheimer’s disease . . . the researchers found a link!

The MIND diet seems to protect some people from showing signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease—even if they have the typical “plaques” and “tangles” in their brains. The study concluded that the MIND diet contributes to “cognitive resilience.” Who doesn’t want that?

Introducing a done-for-you pre-written Health scoop (new study update) to share this information with your clients and patients along with a few practical tips.

MIND Diet, Common Brain Pathologies, and Cognition in Community-Dwelling Older Adults. Journal of Alzheimer’s disease : JAD, 83(2), 683–692. https://doi.org/10.3233/JAD-210107

About the study:

  • Called the Rush Memory and Aging Project (MAP), out of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
  • There have been several studies done on the ability of the MIND diet (Mediterranean + DASH diets) to reduce the risk for dementias like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This particular study looked at older people with no symptoms of Alzheimer’s and followed them from 1997 to see what they ate and whether they eventually developed signs of Alzheimer’s. They found that the closer someone’s diet was to the MIND diet, the less chance they had of developing Alzheimer’s. They also found that—surprisingly—upon death, some of the participants who did not develop symptoms of Alzheimer’s had the typical protein plaque and tangle pathologies in their brains that would indicate Alzheimer’s. 
  • Conclusion: “MIND diet is associated with better cognitive functioning independently of common brain pathology, suggesting that the MIND diet may contribute to cognitive resilience in the elderly.”
  • There is no evidence that eating or avoiding a specific food can prevent Alzheimer’s disease or age-related cognitive decline. This was a very interesting observed association.
  • Note that all studies have limitations. That’s why it’s important to look at multiple studies, giving more weight to the ones that have a better design to answer the questions being asked. For this one, the researchers specifically looked at older people and followed them for years, until they died. They did not require anyone to change their diets or any other aspect of their lifestyle, so that makes this an observational study (no experiment or intervention was done, only asked people to describe their lives and take tests without implementing any lifestyle changes). This means it’s not as strong as a randomized control trial (which would be even better than observational because it would be experimental—but that’s nearly impossible to do for a multi-year nutrition study).
  • Therefore, we can’t say that the MIND diet “prevents” Alzheimer’s, just that it appears to reduce risk or it’s associated with a lower risk (correlation does not equal causation). Here’s a blog post I wrote on this concept: https://leesaklich.com/health-research/correlation-does-not-equal-causation/
  • Study strength is rated a 5/7 according to this chart (observational cohort study): https://www.compoundchem.com/2015/04/09/scientific-evidence/
