Can the neuroprotective effect of the MIND diet against dementia be generalized outside the US?

Takeaway

  • The Mediterranean-DASH diet Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) diet reduces the odds of cognitive decline in Australian adults when compared with the Mediterranean diet.

 

Why this matters

  • The MIND diet may help protect against dementia, yet its protective effects have not been evaluated or compared with the Mediterranean diet outside of the United States (US).
