About the Fox News Radio Network:  Fox News Radio is an American radio network owned by Fox News. It is syndicated to over 500 AM and FM radio stations across the United States. It also supplies programming for three channels on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

Here is the premise of the story:

The University of Michigan compiled a list of popular foods that could increase or decrease life expectancy.

Big win for daily peanut butter and jam consumers.

The researchers didn’t explain how french fries could keep you alive longer, but we will take it. It’s been a long time since fries have received positive press.

This is a great talker. How many of the foods on this list are you eating on a regular basis?

Is it time to ditch the hotdog and grab a PB&J sandwich?

Here is what Lisa will be talking about –

Scientists know that genetics, environment, and lifestyle affect your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.  Diet plays a real role in determining if you’ll develop dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.  Almost everything on your list can be related to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis happening every 66 seconds in America, this should be a great subject to tie to your original story.  Take your #1 food – a peanut butter and jam sandwich!

Is peanut butter good for Alzheimer’s?  The Peanut Institute calls peanuts the Better Brain Food!

A study in September 2021 concluded that, when it comes to choosing the right healthy foods for your brain, peanuts and peanut butter are a nutritious option.  They can help with improving memory, cognitive function and concentration.  They can also give your mood a boost, and, finally, they can even support the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.

Salmon?  Brain scans reveal for the first time that eating plenty of salmon, mackerel and sardines protects against Alzheimer’s by boosting blood flow and memory.

Bananas?  Not-too-sweet fruits like citrus, berries, apples, and pears are full of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. A study calls them “power fruits” because they give you a blast of nutrients without sending your blood sugar sky-rocketing.  But you’ll notice bananas don’t make the list. One a week is ok if you’re craving them, the study says.

Tomatoes?  Are tomatoes good for dementia? A recent study published in Neurology found that incorporating whole foods such as leafy greens, veggies, and some fruits into your daily diet can reduce your risk of developing dementia by 48 percent. Foods such as kale, spinach, tomatoes, and pears were found to help prevent cognitive decline.

In addition to all the diet, one of our recent press releases had some excellent warnings for Latinos and Alzheimer’s disease.  “Alzheimer’s disease is a global crisis that needs native-language resources which help family members and caregivers improve their ability to manage the challenging symptoms and behaviors associated with brain disease,” says Skinner. “Many Latino caregivers end up being family members, as many Latinos live in multigenerational households — homes that include two or more adult generations.   By utilizing the tools in our book, Verdad, Mentiras Y Alzheimer – Sus Caras Secretas, family members can resume spending quality time with their loved one, and that’s the real magic.”

The Alzheimer’s Association statistics revealed that Hispanic people are about 50% more likely to develop Alzheimer’s than non-Latino whites but are less likely to pursue treatment for the disease. Instead, they tend to rely on informal care from family and community members. This can lead to poor health outcomes because of low awareness of the disease and its symptoms as well as limited access to medical resources.
