Published in 2015, research from Rush University in Chicago has combined elements from the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, developed in the early 1990s by Harvard researchers), called the MIND (Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay) diet. The goal is to prevent AD. They tested over 900 Chicago-area seniors over four and a half years. The longer people had followed the MIND diet patterns, the less risk they appeared to have for AD. The study found the MIND diet lowered Alzheimer’s risk by about 35 percent for people who followed it moderately well and up to 53 percent for those who adhered to it rigorously.
