Dementia warning: Food eaten by millions may 'speed up' formation of plaques in the brain


For example, Scientists from the University’s Nutritional Epidemiology Group used data from 500,000 people, discovering that consuming a 25g serving of processed meat a day, the equivalent to one rasher of bacon, is associated with a 44 percent increased risk of developing the disease.

But their findings also show eating some unprocessed red meat, such as beef, pork or veal, could be protective, as people who consumed 50g a day were 19 percent less likely to develop dementia.

Nonetheless, a consensus has formed around the risk of eating too much red meat.

For example, many studies have shown that eating lots of red and processed meat increases the risk of bowel cancer.
