Scientists have created a diet that will help to protect against Alzheimer’s disease and delay the aging of the brain by as much as 8 years.

It is reported that the diet was compiled based on the results of a study in which scientists within 4.7 years conducted surveillance of 960 pensioners. The study participants were regularly checked for their level of cognitive abilities (tests for quality long-term and short-term memory, the ability of perception of the surrounding space, etc.).
It was found that people who followed a more disciplined diet MIND, had 7.5 years younger brain. “The results also showed that this diet can 50% reduce the risk of development of Alzheimer’s disease” — concluded the researchers.
