With dementia on the rise, Ngaire Hobbins explains how we can eat to cheat dementia and cognitive decline in her new book Better Brain Food.In the UK 850,000 people suffer from dementia, and it is on the rise; on average we are living 20 years longer than our grandparents, increasing the likelihood that we will develop dementia at some stage in our lives. With lifelines increasing, looking after our brains is more important than ever and in recent years, a lot of research has been undertaken so we can understand what food and lifestyle changes help to promote brain health and the slow decline of dementia. In Better Brain Food, dietician Ngaire Hobbins explains that in her experience, many elderly patients' cognitive decline could have been mitigated if they had eaten better 3 or 5 years prior. There is something we can do and, as always, prevention is key for people in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. Based on sound scientific research, Better Brain Food is the up-to-date guide to eating for brain health and avoiding decline.
