The MIND Diet was created by researchers hoping to reduce risk of Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of cognitive decline through nutrition. In this episode, Dr. Diana Hill and Dr. Debbie Sorensen continue their conversation about nutrition and the brain by discussing the research supporting the MIND Diet. They present the ten categories of food emphasized in the MIND Diet, and talk about why each seems to matter for brain health. They even present some practical ideas for ways they incorporate these foods in their own lives!
