Types of products associated with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease identified as JAD: processed meats may increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease 02/01/2024, 18:25

Scientists have found that daily consumption of processed meat is associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Research results published In the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease (JAD).

438 Australians participated in the research. Of these, 108 had Alzheimer’s disease and 330 were healthy. Over 17 years, scientists collected information about the volunteers’ dietary habits and lifestyles, and also recorded the amount of alcohol they regularly consumed.

The results showed that participants previously diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease tended to frequently consume mince pies, sausages, ham, pizza and hamburgers. At the same time, their diets were low in fruits and vegetables. It was also noted that the amount of wine consumed was higher in the group without cognitive impairment.

The study’s authors hoped the results could motivate young people to follow a healthy diet. According to scientists, reducing the amount of processed meat consumed may help protect brain health in old age.
