Dementia: Eating more of this type of food could reduce risk

As part of scientists’ widening understanding of dementia, they are beginning to develop theories about not just how to treat dementia, but to prevent someone from developing the condition.

One of these methods could be through someone’s diet.

According to a new study published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience, the consumption of more soluble fiber could reduce an individual’s risk of developing dementia.

The study concluded: “Dietary fibre intake, especially soluble fibre, was inversely associated with risk of disabling dementia”.
