Long-term effects of diet in midlife on subsequent risk for dementia


  • Diet quality during midlife is not significantly associated with subsequent risk for dementia or cognitive decline.

Why this matters

  • Previous studies have suggested diet is linked to cognitive health, however those studies were not sufficiently long-term to draw firm conclusions from. This study accounts for the long pre-clinical phase of dementia in its findings.
