DASH, Mediterranean and now the MIND Diet!

A new diet, known as the MIND diet, could significantly lower a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, according to a paper published in March in the journal Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association.

The MIND diet has 15 dietary components, including 10 "brain-healthy food groups" — green leafy vegetables, other vegetables, nuts, berries, beans, whole grains, fish, poultry, olive oil and wine — and five unhealthy groups that comprise red meats, butter and stick margarine, cheese, pastries and sweets, and fried or fast food.
