Research results show that eating junk food such as pizza and hamburgers is associated with the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease

In order to prevent and treat

Alzheimer's disease , which accounts for 60-70% of dementia cases, it is extremely important to understand the factors associated with the risk of developing dementia. A new study conducted by an Australian research team has revealed that eating a lot of processed foods such as ``hamburgers, pizza, and sausage'' is associated with the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

A Daily Diet of Burgers And Pizzas Could Be Putting You at Risk of Alzheimer's : ScienceAlert

A research team from Australia's Bond University and Griffith University compared the eating habits of 108 Australians diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and 330 healthy Australians to identify eating patterns seen in Alzheimer's patients. I did some research.

As a result, subjects diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease tended to eat processed meat and junk food such as meat pies, sausages, ham, pizza, and hamburgers more frequently than healthy subjects. It has also been reported that subjects with Alzheimer's disease had lower intakes of fruits and vegetables such as oranges, strawberries, avocados, chili peppers, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage, and spinach, as well as lower intakes of red and white wine. .

Alzheimer's disease is a disease that causes a decline in memory and cognitive function, as well as a gradual loss of physical function, eventually leading to death. In developed countries, the number of people with dementia is increasing as the population ages, and in Japan, the number of people aged 65 and over with dementia will reach approximately 6.75 million in 2025, accounting for approximately 1 in 5.4 people aged 65 and over. Because more people are expected to develop dementia, it is critical to know what factors are associated with Alzheimer's disease risk.

Of course, it is not just diet that is related to the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, but a wide range of other factors that need to be considered, including exercise and sleeping habits, living environment, and genetic factors. It is also unclear how diet is linked to the pathology of Alzheimer's disease.

However, it has

long been known that diet is closely related to Alzheimer's disease and cognitive function, and it is possible that an unhealthy diet may cause some health conditions that increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Tahera Ahmad, a biostatistician at Bond University, said the findings linking diet to the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease encourage young people to eat healthier to protect their future cognitive function. I hope it helps you adapt to your life.

'The onset of Alzheimer's disease in the brain begins in middle age, and its effects can be traced to an unhealthy lifestyle from a young age. Instead of eating only junk and processed foods, It is essential to raise awareness among young people about the benefits of eating vegetables, organic foods and home-cooked meals.'
