(NaturalNews) It has recently been discovered that one of the causes of Alzheimer's disease could be an overabundance of bad (LDL) cholesterol, while an abundance of good (HDL) cholesterol has been shown to discourages its onset. The substance known as amyloid plaque, which has been associated with Alzheimer's disease, has been shown to be at higher levels when someone consumes a large amount of bad cholesterol. This means that keeping cholesterol down is just as important in preventing Alzheimer's as it is in managing blood pressure. One of the best ways to avoid this additional risk factor for Alzheimer's is to avoid foods that are high in cholesterol. Avoiding copious amounts of red meat and fried foods is of course one of the ways to decrease bad cholesterol.

Knowing what foods to avoid

One of the foods that is rich in good cholesterol is fish (not fried), including dishes such as sushi. Consuming any food in moderation is going to contribute to one's health overall, and this means cutting back on anything that is not prepared at home. Foods that do not have ingredients that can be bought in a store (unknown chemicals/preservatives) should be avoided at all costs. Eating foods that are natural and simple is incredibly important, because it eliminates the consumption of many things that are known to cause a wide variety of different health problems.

Other great benefits of a healthy diet

There are a huge number of different health problems that can arise from the overconsumption of unhealthy food. Cutting back on bad cholesterol for the future is just one part of the equation; the benefits in day-to-day life are also quite incredible. An increase in energy and a decrease in weight is a benefit that most people will experience, in addition to a much clearer head. It has been proven that a healthy diet contributes in a big way to improved mental acuity and an overall increased sense of well-being. Taking this into account, it becomes easy to see that it is vital to watch what is eaten at all times.

Backed up by science

In recent years, there have been numerous studies done by medical professionals that studied the effects of high bad cholesterol. In numerous studies, it has been proven that lower bad cholesterol paired with higher good cholesterol creates some amazing results. Working with a dietitian can be of great help to those who are looking for some advice on what to eat and what to avoid. There are also numerous cookbooks out there to help out when someone is looking to eat certain types of food that still taste good. Just because bad cholesterol is being cut does not mean that someone will have to go without their favorite foods, and often it can mean discovering some new ones that they did not know existed.
