Nuts in Diet can Help Prevent Alzheimers

Scientists have recently claimed that walnuts can help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.
The research was conducted amongst mice.
These mice had been genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
The mice that had then been fed with a diet 9% rich in walnuts had remained healthy.
On the other hand, the other mice developed signs of dementia.
Walnuts are high in vitamin E and chemicals known as flavonoids which keep illnesses at bay.
The American research team stated: “Our results suggest walnuts may have a beneficial effect in reducing the risk, delaying the onset or slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.”
As the research was on mice, further research needs to be undertaken with humans to ascertain the effect of a walnut rich diet on Alzheimers in humans.
