Are These Foods Giving You Alzheimer's?!?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Nothing says it’s the weekend like grabbing a burger and fries or treating yourself to a milkshake.

But if you’re concerned about your memory, you might want to rethink your menu.

Because researchers from the University of Southern California have just found that eating these types of foods could up your risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

And it should come as no surprise.

Previous studies have tied the sugary and fat-rich Western diet to everything from heart problems to diabetes.

More recently, researchers wanted to see if these health-destroying foods sped up the development of Alzheimer’s.

For the study, the scientists fed a Western-style diet to mice who were genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s.

After just 12 weeks of binging on this poor diet, the mice had increased deposits of beta-amyloid protein and glial cells.

Both are hallmarks of Alzheimer’s that kill nerve cells and promote inflammation.

But the bad news doesn’t end there…

Other research shows that Americans have a higher risk of developing brain problems than other nationalities.

And of course, the only clear catalyst for this is the Western-style diet, which increases cholesterol and other Alzheimer’s agents.

So if you want to keep your brain healthy, your best bet is to skip processed foods and treats.

Instead, swap them out for fresh fruits and veggies. Natural foods like these are full of antioxidants that can stave off inflammation – one of the key drivers behind Alzheimer’s.

Live well,
