Healthy Diet for Preventing Dementia

Dementia is a chronic disorder caused by brain injury or disease, which gradually reduce the cognitive ability of a person. In Hong Kong, most dementia cases are found in the people aged over 65.

Sally Poon, certified dietitian, suggested that dementia has a strong correlation with heart diseases and stroke. The key to preventing dementia is to control blood pressure, glucose level, heart diseases and stroke. In additional, regular exercise, balanced diet, avoid smoking and drinking are essential. Also, intake of trans fat and saturated fat should be reduced.

Mediterranean diet has been popular among the anti-dementia or elderly care groups. As the food provides plenty of antioxidant and omega 3, which are showed effective against dementia.

See below.

  1. Grains: Whole Grain Bread, Red Rice, Brown Rice

  2. Fruit & Vegetables

  3. Nuts (Moderate amount for omega 3)

  4. Fish (avoid red meat)

  5. Olive Oil

  6. Wine

Though it is not suggested to drink alcohol. If a habit is already formed, two glasses of wine per day or few grapes with skin can help. And of course, not the glass below!

  1. Excellent information, most of the people are following fast food diet system. It will only make dangerous effects in the body. Lots of people are eating junk food items. It will also cause so many effects. I hope, people will follow natural food diets. If they know the health benefits of vegetables and fruits, surely they are follow the natural food diet system in their life.

  3. Getting into tying flies but not sure where to start, getting a kit can be the way to go. There are many kits out there on THE FLYING FISHING WORLD and can be very helpful in starting your journey into fly tying. I personally bought the cheapest kit on the market when I first started. There was only a couple back then and it helped me get into tying at a relatively low cost.
