According to Dr. Jennifer Robinson, almost all fried and highly processed foods, including french fries and fast food, reduce a person's thinking ability, writes the Daily Express.
According to a specialist, eating such food, a person provokes an inflammatory process in the body. Over time, inflammation affects the vessels that supply oxygen and blood to the brain, which can lead to Alzheimer's disease.
Doctors recommend replacing foods high in saturated fat with unsaturated ones. A proper diet helps to normalize blood cholesterol levels and improve health.
Robinson said that about 20% of people over 60 years old have problems with being overweight, which increases the likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease.
