462108731Healthy dietary choices in midlife may prevent dementia in later years, according research from the University of Eastern Finland. Those who ate the healthiest diet at the average age of 50 had an almost 90 per cent lower risk of dementia in a 14-year follow-up study than those whose diet was the least healthy. Load up your plate with vegetables, berries, fruits, fish and unsaturated fats from milk products and spreads – the components associated with a healthy diet in midlife for this study. Sausages, eggs, sweets, sugary drinks, salty fish and saturated fats from milk products and spreads got the thumbs down for being too unhealthy.
