Advances & More News / Directly from the USA: Less Postmortem Alzheimer Disease Pathology Seen With MIND, Mediterranean Diets

Less postmortem Alzheimer disease (AD) pathology, mainly beta-amyloid load, is seen with the Mediterranean-Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) and Mediterranean diets, according to a study published online March 8 in Neurology. Puja Agarwal, Ph.D., from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, and colleagues examined the association of the MIND and Mediterranean dietary patterns with beta-amyloid load, phosphorylated tau tangles, and global AD pathology in the postmortem brain tissue of older adults. Data were included for 581 study participants (age at death, 91.0 ± 6.3 years). Source: Advances and More licensed by HealthDay
