         Diseases of Central Nervous system


About 5-8% of all people over the age of 65 have some form of dementia, and this number doubles every five years above that age. Dementia is the loss of mental ability, severe enough to interfere with people's every life and Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia in aging people.
II. Causes of dementia.
G. Diet Causes of dementia
 Midlife characteristics of nonsmoking, body mass index (BMI) less than 25.0 kg/m(2) , physically active, and having a healthy diet (based on alcohol, dairy, meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, cereals, and ratio of monounsaturated to saturated fat) are associated to reduce risk of dementia(132)

1. Saturated fat and Trans fat(145)
Saturated fat are important for energy, hormone production, cellular membranes, especially in signaling and stabilization processes in the body, but over consumption can cause cholesterol buildup in the arteries of which can lead to heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, etc. A high saturated fat and cholesterol intake has shown to increase the risk of dementia, whereas fish consumption may decrease this risk(135)(145), probably due to involvement in the β-oxidation process of long-chain fatty acids, very-long-chain fatty acids, and branched-chain fatty acids of peroxisome(133)(145)  in the breaks down molecules into smaller units to release energy of very long chain fatty acids(134). Intake of trans fat is also found to potentially increase the AD risk or causes an earlier onset of the disease due to its effects in increased production of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides, main components of senile plaques(136).

2. Artificial sweetener
Artificial sweetener can cause obesity risk of dementia independent of diabetes and cardiovascular comorbidities(137). and induced increasing consumption of fat(138).

3. Fast Foods
Fast foods, unwholesome foods, containing high amounts of artificial ingredients, with an aim to be  cooked fast and handed over to the customer in minutes may induce anxiety, tension, depression, difficulty in concentration, and memory of that can lead to onset of senile dementia(139).

4. Artificial ingredients
A standard American diet containing high amount of MSG  and aspartame may induce the early onset of neurodegenerative disease(140)

5. Alcohol
 Moderate alcohol drinking are associated with a reduced risk of unspecified incident dementia and AD(141)(145), but excessive consumption of alcohol not only causes liver damage but also increases the risk of neuro-degeneration, including onset of dementia due to its neurotoxic and neuroprotective effect(142).

6. Low intake of fruits and Vegetables
 Nutrition plays a role in the ageing process of the brain and suboptimal nutrient. According to The Chinese University of Hong Kong, older people with questionable dementia have lower intakes of vegetables, fruits(145) and fluid than those who were cognitively normal(143)

7. Meat
The typical American diet containing high amounts of red meat has shown to increase risk of cholesterol build up in the blood vessels and capillaries in causation of heart diseases and stroke(144) and cognitive impairment(135).
