Japanese researchers looked at 1,006 Japanese men and women between the ages of 60-79 years old. All of them were free of any signs of dementia. They charted these people for an average of 15 years to see if their diet played any role in how likely they were to develop dementia as they got older. I think the results are extraordinary.
Of these participants, 271 people developed dementia, with another 88 developing vascular dementia. Vascular dementia stems from the results of poor circulation. They also found that 144 developed Alzheimer's disease, and 39 had dementia from other causes. The researchers looked at what they were eating, and came up with seven different dietary combinations. One was significantly less likely to lead to dementia. It was a diet high in soybeans and soybean products, vegetables, algae, and milk and dairy products, and low in carbohydrates. How effective was the diet? Get this.
This diet reduced dementia from all causes by 66%, Alzheimer's by 65%, and vascular dementia by an astounding 45%. These numbers are truly amazing. I don't think there is one drug or supplement out there that can boast anything as good. Notice that three things stand out about this diet. It is high in vegetables, algae, and soy (rather than animal protein). I can't think of one reason why we can't all be on this diet. But there is one thing you need to be clear on.
Make sure that any soy or soy products you eat are organic. I put only organic soy (as well as the best organic algae available) in my Super Immune QuickStart powder. That's because if it's not organic you can bet it is genetically modified soy. And genetically modified soy may be the single, most unhealthy food you can eat.
There is a lot of false information out there about the so-called dangers of eating soy. I have written about this before. So just to be clear, let me restate that as long as it's organic soy, it is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It does not cause low thyroid function or lead to breast or prostate cancer. In fact, there are many published studies that show that it can be successfully used to treat these diseases.
