Older adults may reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s dementia by increasing their intake of strawberries, as determined by researchers at Rush University. Dr. Puja Agarwal and her team analyzed data collected for the Rush Memory and Aging Project (MAP) between 2004 and 2018. After reviewing the complete data of 925 participants’ annual food frequency questionnaires and extensive neurological evaluations, an association between frequent strawberry consumption and decreased Alzheimer’s dementia emerged. Among other intriguing results, researchers found participants consuming one or more servings of strawberries per week have a 34% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia.
