MIEUX MANGER POUR PREVENIR L'ALZHEIMER ET D'AUTRES MALADIES NEURODEGENERATIVES
The right time to embrace a healthy diet is NOW.
Medical progress means we're living longer than ever before, but not necessarily in good health. Fifteen years from now, 1.4 million Canadians will have some form of dementia, according to some estimates. Is it possible to grow old in good health and significantly reduce our chances of developing Alzheimer's? The answer is YES.
Many recent studies have shown that we can reduce our risk of developing a neurodegenerative disease by 30 to 50 percent by embracing a healthier lifestyle and diet. The food we eat can be a determining factor in slowing cognitive decline, with certain vitamins, phytonutrients and marine oils being particularly beneficial. This book is a guide to eating well with a view to keeping your brain young for as long as possible.
Because Alzheimer's disease can set into the brain for 10 to 20 years before it is detected, the right time to embrace a healthy diet is NOW.
