The study published by Neurology proves to us once again that our way of life, in particular our plate, can have an impact on our brain. Thus, scientists have demonstrated that the consumption of unsaturated fatty acids could lead to a risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. For ten years, researchers followed more than 1,600 Japanese men and women without dementia.
