A new study has found that drinking a glass of orange juice daily could significantly reduce one's risk of getting dementia.
The study followed nearly 28,000 men (in the United states) and their daily consumption of fruits and vegetables.
All participants, whose mean age was 51, were tracked from 1986 to 2002.
The study found that men who drank a small glass of orange juice were 47 per cent less likely to develop poor thinking skills than those who drank less than one serving per month.
By simply drinking a glass of orange juice a day, the chances of developing dementia were 50% less than those who don't....that is incredible!
The study also found that men who ate more vegetables were 34 per cent less likely to report having experienced a reduction in memory function.
"One of the most important factors in this study is that we were able to research and track such a large group of men over a 20-year period of time, allowing for very telling results," said Changzheng Yuan, a research fellow at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health as well as the study's lead author.
