Furthermore, researchers found out that this kind of diet also facilitates the Alzheimer’s disease. They explained: “Simply changing what we eat is a more economic alternative than pharmacological interventions, which often have side effects“.

In order to avoid the disease, experts suggest to follow a diet poor in saturated fats and carbohydrates. At the same time, they recommend to eat many foods rich in fiber, vitamins, especially A, C, D and unsaturated fats. These foods could prevent the disease and even cure it.

Depression is spreading more and more, even among young men. There are many causes, from being jobless to the environment in which you live. The studies on this issue are more and more numerous.
