Brain research, including clinical trials and imaging studies, offer dramatic proof that brain healthy nutrition and other lifestyles not only reduce risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and cognitive decline but can slow progression in early AD and MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment). To date, no approved drug can do this!

Certain foods and combinations of foods can affect the accumulation of AD pathological proteins such as beta-amyloid in human brains, the size of the hippocampus, and short and longer term cognitive processes. Some foods harm the brain; others protect and benefit, and the ways foods affect human brains are multiple.

With this knowledge in hand, how do we engage individuals and organizations in making changes to promote brain healthy eating? We share some successes in guiding change.
