How can I reduce my risk of developing dementia?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
To keep your brain cells humming and disease-free, you need to lessen the possibility of plaque formation, which is tied to dementia. To do so, decrease inflammation in your body by following an anti-inflammatory diet. Eliminate all nitrates. To wipe away plaque formation and defeat dementia, eliminate inflammatory foods like nitrates found in heavily processed foods such as meats and cheeses from the deli counter. Remember to always check labels and avoid the ingredient "sodium nitrate."
