Dietary choices play a role in one’s susceptibility to cognitive decline and dementia later in life. During the natural course of aging, cognitive reserve (the brain’s ability to recover from a neurological insult, like a concussion or drug overdose) is gradually depleted. Loss of cognitive reserve capacity is particularly insidious because it can only be detected when it is too late for preventive measures to have a meaningful effect. The good news is that cognitive reserve can be maintained through positive lifestyle choices, including regular exercise, a rich and engaging social life and a diet comprised of brain healthy foods. One’s “dose” of education (i.e., educational attainment), is also likely a protective factor, though the causal directionality of this observation remains to be seen. (One possibility is that people with more resilient brains from the outset are more likely to attain terminal degrees, such as a PhD.)
