Eating Citrus Fruits Daily Could Cut the Risk of Dementia
A major study by the team of researchers from Tohoku University, Japan, finds that citrus fruits could be very effective in cutting the risk of developing dementia.
For this study, the scientists tracked more than 13,000 middle-aged or elderly men and women for several years and found that those who ate citrus had 23% less risk of developing the condition compared to those who ate citrus less than twice a week.
The scientists explain: “Some biological studies have indicated citrus may have preventive effects against cognitive impairment. But no study has examined the relation between citrus consumption and rates of dementia. Our findings suggest frequent consumption is linked with a lower risk of dementia.”
