If you want to have a healthy brain, then you eat eggs for breakfast, as suggested by researchers from the University of Eastern Finland. And do not worry, because the inclusion of this product in your diet will not lead to senile dementia.
Eating eggs does not increase the risk of developing dementia as found Finnish researchers. On the contrary, in fact eggs help to strengthen the functioning of the brain. This product contains dietary cholesterol, as previously scientists believed that eggs increase the risk of heart attack, high blood pressure and obesity. It is well known that all these disorders damage the heart, arteries and blood flow, which increases the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Now, however, the Finnish researchers have shown that eating eggs only in a very small degree increases cholesterol levels. The scientists analyzed food 2497 men aged 42 to 60 years who were not diagnosed with memory disorders. During 22 years of observations in 337 neurological disorders have been identified, most of which turned out to be Alzheimer's disease. The researchers found that one-third of these men were carriers of a specific gene called APOE4 which is already established risk factor for cardiovascular disease and senile dementia.
However, although it is known that people with APOE4 are at increased risk of these diseases, there are no firm guarantees that they will be faced with them. Researchers have shown that neither cholesterol nor the use of eggs not associated with increased risk of dementia. However, those people who are actively consumed the eggs, then better cope with neuropsychological tests.
The findings suggest that a diet high in cholesterol and frequent egg consumption does not pose a threat in terms of memory disorders, even in people who are genetically predisposed to it.
