Healthy nutrition: vegetables and fish as a preventive measure against Alzheimer's. If you eat a lot of vegetables, fish and nuts, you can significantly reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease. This was found out by researchers from New York Columbia University in a study.
Those who eat a lot of vegetables, fish and nuts can significantly reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (Alzheimer's disease). Eating tomatoes, lettuce and poultry can also have positive effects. However, one should avoid beef, animal offal and butter. In principle, a low-fat vegetable diet should be preferred. Around 1.2 million people in Germany currently suffer from Alzheimer's. For the study, the eating habits of around 2150 people aged at least 65 years were observed.
At the start of the study, the subjects were not diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The total observation time was four years. In the course of the study, 253 test subjects developed Alzheimer's disease. Based on the study, the researchers observed a positive preventive effect with an appropriate diet. The results of the study could serve as a basis for further research, the scientists told the science newspaper “Archives of Neurology”. After the diagnosis of Alzheimer's has been made, the life expectancy of patients is about seven to ten years, although there are also cases in which the end stage is reached after four to five years.
From the point of view of naturopathy, the question arises as to whether the worldwide changing dietary habits towards an increased consumption of more meat and carbohydrates are partly responsible for the development of diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. It is also suspected that additives such as aluminum (partly in hygiene and personal care items such as deodorant) are deposited in the human organism in the so-called neurofibrils and can trigger Alzheimer's.
The results of the American scientists seem to confirm that a more natural way of life is beneficial to the organism and that a disease such as Alzheimer's disease, which usually means a great emotional burden for the social environment and the relatives of those affected, combined with an immense amount of care, can help avoid.
