Dietary patterns and some dietary components have been linked with dementia. We therefore performed a meta-analysis of available studies to determine whether there is an association between diet and risk of dementia. We included eligible articles and estimated risk ratio (RR) with 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CIs). Finally, there were 43 trials that met the inclusion standard. Some food intake was related with decrease of dementia, such as unsaturated fatty acids (RR: 0.84, 95 % CI: [0.74–0… 

Intake of fruit and vegetables and the incident risk of cognitive disorders: A systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies

  • L. WuD. SunY. Tan
  • Medicine, Psychology
    The journal of nutrition, health & aging
  • 2017
TLDR
The pooled analysis showed that consumption of fruit and vegetables was inversely associated with the incident risk of cognitive disorders, and the pooled RR was 0.74, with evidence of significant heterogeneity (I2 =68%).

Adherence to Mediterranean diet and risk of developing cognitive disorders: An updated systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies

TLDR
Dose-response analysis indicated a trend of an approximately linear relationship of the Mediterranean diet score with the incident risk of cognitive disorders, and further studies of randomized controlled trials are warranted to confirm the observed association in different populations.

The association of energy and macronutrient intake with all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease and dementia: findings from 120 963 women and men in the UK Biobank

TLDR
The biggest benefit from diet-related policy and interventions will be when combinations of macronutrients are targeted, both as single macRONutrients and for combinations with other macronsutrients for death, CVD and dementia.

Long-term association of vegetable and fruit intake with risk of dementia in Japanese older adults: the Hisayama study

TLDR
Higher intakes of vegetables and their constituent nutrients were associated with a lower risk of dementia in Japanese older adults, suggesting a diet rich in vegetables may be beneficial in reducing the dementia risk in Asians.

MIND diet and the risk of dementia: a population-based study

TLDR
Better adherence to the MIND diet is associated with a decreased risk of dementia within the first years of follow-up, but this may in part be explained by reverse causality and residual confounding by lifestyle.

Association between fish consumption and risk of dementia: a new study from China and a systematic literature review and meta-analysis

TLDR
Greater consumption of fish is associated with a lower risk of dementia, and increasing fish consumption may help prevent dementia worldwide regardless of income level.

Interactions between dietary patterns and genetic factors in relation to incident dementia among 70-year-olds

TLDR
The results of this study suggest that there is an interplay between dietary patterns and APOE ε4 status in relation to incident dementia.

The Association between the Mediterranean Dietary Pattern and Cognitive Health: A Systematic Review

TLDR
Results from this review indicate that the Mediterranean diet could play a major role in cognitive health and risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Dietary Factors and Neurodegenerative Disorders: An Umbrella Review of Meta-Analyses of Prospective Studies.

TLDR
The results indicate that the Mediterranean diet, fish, and tea could be inversely associated with neurodegenerative disorders, and the quality of evidence was generally low, suggesting that further studies are likely to change the overall estimates.

Association of Midlife Diet With Subsequent Risk for Dementia

TLDR
Diet quality assessed during midlife was not significantly associated with subsequent risk for dementia in this long-term prospective cohort study.

TLDR
Overall, findings do not consistently show habitual intakes of dietary antioxidants are associated with better cognitive performance or a reduced risk for dementia.

TLDR
As the value of vitamin D substitution in cognitive impairment remains doubtful, a long-time major placebo-controlled randomized trial of vitaminD supplementation in participants with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) should be started.

TLDR
Higher intake of foods rich in vitamin E may modestly reduce long-term risk of dementia and AD.

Intake of flavonoids and risk of dementia

TLDR
The intake of antioxidant flavonoids is inversely related to the risk of incident dementia, and is associated with a lower incidence of dementia in a cohort of 1367 subjects above 65 years of age.

TLDR
While the overall number of studies is small, pooled results suggest that a higher adherence to the MeDi is associated with a reduced risk of developing MCI and AD, and a Reduced risk of progressing from MCI to AD.

Fruit, vegetables and prevention of cognitive decline or dementia: A systematic review of cohort studies

  • M. LoefH. Walach

TLDR
Increased intake of vegetables is associated with a lower risk of dementia and slower rates of cognitive decline in older age, yet, evidence that this association is also valid for high fruit consumption is lacking.

Midlife Healthy-Diet Index and Late-Life Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease

TLDR
A healthy diet at midlife is associated with a decreased risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in late life, and the importance of dietary patterns may make more effective measures for dementia/AD prevention or postponement possible.

TLDR
Results show that wine and spirits displayed opposing associations with dementia, and a protective effect was not seen for the other beverages, at least part of the association for wine may be explained by components other than ethanol.

Food combination and Alzheimer disease risk: a protective diet.

TLDR
Simultaneous consideration of previous knowledge regarding potentially AD-related nutrients and multiple food groups can aid in identifying food combinations that are associated with AD risk.
