Let’s start with the bad, shall we? Here are 4 foods that increase Alzheimer’s risk.
Red meat contains lots of iron, which is good – to a point. According to a UCLA study, once you pass that point your brain begins collecting the excess iron in its gray matter. Over time, this speeds up the oxidative damage responsible for Alzheimer’s.
This isn’t to say we should give up red meat altogether. Unless it’s processed red meat; you can skip that altogether. As for those fresh cuts of beef, remember – balance is your friend.
