The Alzheimer’s Prevention diet book, written by Dr. Richard Isaacson, points out that light consumption of alcohol, particularly red wine, may provide antioxidant properties that could reduce cognitive decline (involving memory and thinking skills). Some people think if a small amount is good, more is better; it’s important to note that this is NOT the case with alcohol consumption and Alzheimer’s prevention.

New research has questioned whether or not several food additives, like artificial sweeteners, may cause more harm then good. When it comes to reducing risk for Alzheimer’s and memory loss, the new book The Alzheimer’s Diet suggests several tips on how to make more Brain-Healthier food choices. Recent studies have shown that these sweeteners may actually increase weight gain and diabetes, but should these and other food additives should you avoid for maintaining the Alzheimer’s diet?
For some time the food industry has created more and more processed foods chock full of all sorts of chemicals, refined grains, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), and more. The food supply has been transformed by the food industry in order to improve everything from the time span products can sit on the shelf to the flavor and attractiveness. Foods have even been genetically modified so that they won’t attract insects (in order to save money on pesticides).
