Summary

For decades, the medical profession has advocated for nutritional management as part of the treatment strategy for a variety of illnesses including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and excessive cholesterol. There are currently no such recommendations for brain aging and dementia.

Nutrition was only recently accorded scientific-field status, and eating has been recognized as a valid technique of defending oneself against brain aging and disorders such as Alzheimer's. Scientists have gradually come to recognize the important link between the foods we eat and our mental health. This insight has spawned a rapidly rising body of studies indicating that we may be eating our way to dementia.

What has gone unreported until now is the fact that, of all the organs in our bodies, the brain is the one most easily harmed by a poor diet. Everything in the brain, from its architecture to its ability to perform, begs for optimal nutrition. Many of us are ignorant that the only way to fuel the brain is through our nutrition. The meals we eat are broken down into nutrients, absorbed into the bloodstream, and transported to the brain to replenish depleted store, stimulate cellular responses, and, most critically, be incorporated into brain tissue.

We are what we eat!
