Diet & Alzheimer’s Disease

High Calorie Diets may increase risk of Alzheimer’s

A diet high in calories and fat may increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in people who are genetically susceptible to the disorder, new preliminary research suggests.

The study found that people who consumed the most calories and fat faced double the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The findings, which are reported in this month’s Archives of Neurology, are the latest evidence that lifestyle factors including diet may play a role in Alzheimer’s.

It is thought that restricting calories may slow the aging process by reducing production of cell-damaging oxygen molecules called free radicals, formed during the body’s breakdown of food. The latest study, though preliminary, suggests that for some people, calorie restriction might lower Alzheimer’s risks by curbing nerve-cell death in the brain.
