Dementia: The three “main” products that “damage” memory and cause cognitive impairment

Dementia remains one of the most pressing medical problems of the 21st century. But in the absence of treatment to stop the disease, researchers are working to improve prevention. To date, the available data suggest that the three “main products” should be avoided at all costs. The incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is already rampant, but there is strong evidence that their burden will increase over the next decades. Studies of dementia have found that foods can impair the severity of cognitive function. Three, in particular, can contribute to rapid cognitive impairment. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the accumulation of proteins that interfere with communication between brain cells. This leads to a constant decrease in cognitive functions, which ultimately worsens the lives of patients. There are a number of factors that contribute to this pathology, but according to the Alzheimer’s website, certain products may be responsible. “Unfortunately, foods that interfere with memory are the main products of the American diet,” explains health. Fortunately, it is estimated that up to 30 percent of cases can be prevented, which gives hope that an early push to change lifestyles can significantly change the course of mental decline. Processed cheese Researchers studying the role of diet have warned that processed dairy products contribute to the formation of harmful plaques in the brain. Recent results suggest that processed foods not only contribute to impaired cognitive function, but also significantly accelerate it. In fact, a recent study found that harmful effects can occur in as little as four weeks. But some processed foods can be more harmful than others. It is noteworthy that some dairy products, such as processed cheese, can cause harmful plaque. White products No less harmful are the main products of white color, including pasta, cakes, rice and breaks.

This is due to the fact that they contribute to inflammation in the body – one of the signs of neurodegenerative diseases. In cases of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, inflammation promotes the formation of plaques in the brain, which contributes to the slow degeneration of cognitive functions. Popcorn Popcorn in the microwave is considered particularly harmful because it contains diacetyl, a chemical that increases amyloid plaque in the brain. The danger of diacetyl was identified in a study in 2012, which found that diacetyl may increase the harmful effects of protein accumulation. The findings also showed that the compound causes breathing problems and lung disease. It has long been known that diets containing omega-3 fatty acids are optimal for maintaining a healthy brain. Recent results published in the journal Brain Behavior and Immunity have confirmed that these nutrients can counteract the inflammatory effects of processed foods. Foods, including nuts, fatty fish and some oils, can prevent neurodegeneration-related proteins from improper coagulation, confusion and extracellular plaque formation.
