Research: Researchers tested whether consumption of fruit and vegetable juices, containing a high concentration of polyphenols, decreases the risk of incident probable Alzheimer's disease in the "Kame Project" cohort, a population-based prospective study of 1836 Japanese Americans in King County, Washington, who were dementia-free at baseline (1992-1994) and were followed through 2001.
Results: Those who drank fruit or vegetable juice three or more times per week were 76% less likely to develop the disease, compared to those who drank juice less than once per week. Researchers believe fruit and vegetable juices may play an important role in delaying the onset of Alzheimer's disease, particularly among those who are at high risk for the disease. Further, they think these results may lead to a new avenue of inquiry in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.
