Do you want to think better and remember more when you are old?

From the desk of Prof. Carrick: old-memory-with-crestAn interesting paper published today suggests that elderly Chinese folks might protect their minds by diet and lifestyle. So, what to take??? Eight vitamins and six minerals with carotenoids, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 representing the best protective factors. Something simple such as the Hardy Essential Nutrients have demonstrated statistical and substantive significance in mental health research by Harvard’s Charlie Popper and University of Calgary researcher Barbara Kaplan. More on that later!
Education, computer use, reading, and drinking represented the most protective lifestyle factors. So cheers to you but be careful not to spill the booze on the computer–you need that. And it was found that adequate dietary intake of monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol were significantly associated with decreased risk of MCI. Delicious! These things are easy to do and if it works for the Chinese then perhaps it might work for us. Give the paper a read, its worth it. — Prof. Ted Carrick Reference:
