Dr. Chauhan was quoted saying "Walnuts may have a beneficial effect in reducing the risk, delaying the onset or slowing progression of Alzheimer's disease”.

The researchers have based their conclusion on a study of experimentation on laboratory rodents a few of whom were fed with walnuts. It was instituted that feeding the nuts to mice with Alzheimer's disease kept their cerebral skills high.

But those mice without them underwent a remarkable loss in learning, memory and physical and emotional power. The results signify a penetration in the study of how the brain putrefied.

Another study showed the benefits of tea, coffee and exercise.

A study by Harvard Medical School of 1,200 old people demonstrated ‘temperate to heavy’ exercise paid for a 40% lower threat of dementia.
