Baycrest launches first Canadian Brain Health Food Guide

Care Education Research

“Our Brain Health Food Guide will help adults 50+ preserve their thinking and memory skills as they age. There is increasing evidence in scientific literature that healthy eating is associated with retention of cognitive function, but there is also a lot of misinformation out there. This guide will help older adults seeking to proactively manage their brain health through healthy nutrition.”

– Dr. Carol Greenwood, co-author of the Brain Health Food Guide and senior scientist at Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute

Research has found that dietary patterns similar to those outlined in the first Canadian Brain Health Food Guide are associated with decreasing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by 36 per cent and mild cognitive impairment (a condition likely to develop into Alzheimer’s) by 27 per cent.
