Diet modifications – including more wine and cheese – may help reduce cognitive decline – Study

The foods we eat may have a direct impact on our cognitive acuity in our later years. This is the key finding of an Iowa State University research study spotlighted in an article published in the November 2020 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.

The study was spearheaded by principal investigator, Auriel Willette, an assistant professor in Food Science and Human Nutrition, and Brandon Klinedinst, a Neuroscience PhD candidate working in the Food Science and Human Nutrition department at Iowa State. The study is a first-of-its-kind large scale analysis that connects specific foods to later-in-life cognitive acuity.

  2. I am having trouble thinking about this. Because there is almost a double negative. Are you saying that more wine and cheese is part of a cognitive decline or the opposite. If the opposite, that cheese and wine are good for one, then this flies in the face of a non-dairy diet being better than a dairy one.

    Would you like to clarify?
