Here is an excerpt of my recent talk on limiting brain aging :
Diet: this one thing you do have control over.
You have a choice of what you put in your mouth.
What you eat will affect your brain: good or bad
Avoid the bad:
Bad fats: saturated fats: red meats, fried food, fast food, junk food, chips, cheeses, desserts and pastries
Research shows statins may help reduce dementia
Bad carbs: sugar and starch
Enjoy the good:
Good fats: Unsaturated fats: omega 3 fatty acids,
Fish, fish oil, olive oil, nuts
Good carbs: Fruits and vegetables: fill up, cant get too much.
