Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Brain and food...
I am sitting here looking at 2 brains that have been scanned by MRI's. One brain is of a women in her 50's that has been eating a mediterraean-style diet. This person has less amyloid plaques, which can lead to extreme cognitive decline such as Alzheimer's in the future. The brains also had less fluid in the areas of the Ventricles, Hippocampus (memories), and the Temporal lobes. With the western diet that is full of meat and sugars there is a big difference in the areas just mentioned. There are holes, in the areas of the brain that were just mentioned, that can lead to the affects of Alzheimers. Anyone ready to change their diet? Cognitive decline is not fun, unless you have a lot of money and can find someone kind to take care of you.
Lisa Mosconi PhD., from Cornell University Alzheimer Clinic, scanned the brains of 52 people to see what the effects of the diet can bring. The Mediterranean Diet wins by a long shot. The diet uses fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and beans. The next step up in the pyramid is whole grains, minimally processed. Then they use fish. Meat and cheeses are used only occasionally. They will have some sweets on the weekend that are made from natural sugars, honey and molasses with seeds and nuts. They also use olive oil and red wine with all of their good components. They also have a good life style of exercise, and a rich social life. Add a mix of a positive outlook on life and I am ready to move.
