Blueberries Improve Cognitive Function #Vegan

March 15, 2016

Blueberries improve cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients, according to two studies presented last week at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society. The studies were funded by the National Institute on Aging, along with the blueberry industry. Researchers analyzed data from MRI scans of 47 participants with cognitive impairment. Those who ingested blueberry powder showed signs of cognitive improvement and increased brain activity, compared with those who received a placebo powder. An additional study included 94 participants with memory loss. Those who consumed the blueberry powder experienced some improvement when compared to those who consumed fish oil or a placebo. These findings suggest anthocyanins, flavonoids found in blueberries, may effectively treat cognitive impairments in those with more severe problems.

HOW NOT TO DIE, an instant New York Times Best Seller Michael Greger, MD #Vegan

How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease

The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-recognized lecturer, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of death in America—heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and more—and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The 15 leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn’t have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger’s advice, all of it backed up by peer-reviewed scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer.

History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug—and without the side effects. What about liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (our #1 killer)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to help prevent the disease, but arrest and even reverse it.

In addition to showing what to eat to help prevent the top 15 causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen—a checklist of the foods we should try to consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor’s orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from all book sales are donated to the 501c3 nonprofit charity NutritionFacts.org.
