♦ “We are so trapped by our irrational fear of Alzheimer’s and dementia that we typically view them as our fate—a hopeless, genetically determined punishment of living too long that condemns us to an agonizing descent into oblivion. Do not believe it.

In recent years researchers in the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia have noted the impact of diet, nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, developing purpose, interests, hobbies, learning, and friendships on Alzheimer’s and dementia. One new development is the “Mind Diet” combining the DASH Diet and the Mediterranean Diet with eating berries: Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Tart Cherries, Concord Grapes, Elderberries, and Strawberries.
