  • Scientists from the University of Iowa analyzed diets of nearly 2,000 Britons, 46 to 77 years old, over 8 years
  • Cheese was found to be the most protective food against age-related cognitive decline
  • Daily red wine and a weekly portion of lamb also improved cognitive power
  • High levels of salt intake proved to be the biggest threat to cognitive power
  • Responsible daily consumption of red wine and cheese were shown to benefit the brain and protect it from Alzheimer's and dementia
  • The Iowa team of scientists utilized the UK Biobank for the data and just published their findings in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
