    Default Diet - Including More Wine And Cheese - May Help Reduce Cognitive Decline

    Iowa State University
    December 10 2020

    The foods we eat may have a direct impact on our cognitive acuity in our later years. This is the key finding of an Iowa State University research study spotlighted in an article published in the November 2020 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
    The study was spearheaded by principal investigator, Auriel Willette, an assistant professor in Food Science and Human Nutrition, and Brandon Klinedinst, a Neuroscience PhD candidate working in the Food Science and Human Nutrition department at Iowa State. The study is a first-of-its-kind large scale analysis that connects specific foods to later-in-life cognitive acuity.

    #1. I might add that after a 20 month moratorium of all dairy products, and with a good ultrasound report results of my stented right carotid artery, I have recently resumed melting a small amount of good quality cheese (like gouda, muenster, etc.) on my morning skillet. Watch Dr. Thomas Levy's 75 minute lecture, Death By Calcium https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwi9iZvudXA

    #2. ".....particularly red wine..." That should read "...particularly DRY red wine..." for less sugary carbs. I have always kept a gallon/magnum bottle of DRY red Burgundy table wine from Wally, to go along with my noon time dinner on occasion. And if I don't combine the wine with food, it can sometimes upset my stomach.

    #3. Mmmm, lamb.

    Great advice for me! I adore cheese and have some kind in some amount almost every day. Wine, not so much, may be a couple of glasses a week but it's all homemade and organic. And I'm about to put an entire lamb in the freezer — local and organic, of course.

    I would have to mortgage my house to afford lamb, and heaven knows how much organic lamb would cost! Lamb used to be the cheapest meat here years ago, I don't know why it has become so expensive. I do drink wine with my meals, but have never liked red wine. I enjoy a glass of icy cold white wine, with cheese and rice crackers.

    Ironically, Julie, Australian lamb is occasionally on sale here at the very very low prices, competitive with pork and beef. But that's only occasionally, and usually the price is rather high. I really don't understand why since sheep basically thrive on a diet of grass. But this time I'm buying not just a side, a whole lamb from friends who are building a dairy herd of sheep. I'm happy helping to support them while purchasing something I like and that keeps me healthy.

    Same here, certain cuts of prepackaged (domestic Superior Farms et al) lamb steaks at Wally appear reasonably priced, and I occasionally buy it to be further cut up into 2 or 3 breakfast sized meat portions. Mmmmm, lamb 'n eggs.

    However, all meats at Wally are prepackaged at central locations so one cannot rely on them for over the counter butchering, therefore I can't find a decent large sized leg-of-lamb roast at a reasonable price, like the NZ imported, (and other), ones I remember from back east.

    OTOH, Albertson's Market, (now part of the Safeway Acme merger) has a fresh meat dept counter where one can buy butchered-weighted meat. Since Albertson's doesn't have as long a Covid-19 waiting line as Wally does, perhaps I'll take that opportunity to investigate any large leg-of-lamb cuts they might have in their fresh meat-fish dept., for a PREPLANNED, Adele Davis, 24 hour slow roast event.

    As we do not have dairy cattle here, and I like to eat local food as much as possible, I do eat a great amount of goat cheese and goat yogurt. Love it!

    And it's assuredly guaranteed to be from A2/A2 heritage dairy stock, unless off course, the genetic scientist geniuses have figured out a way to screw that up as well; such as Frankengoats. https://www.ign.com/wikis/far-cry-3-...gon/Devil_Goat

    No Frankengoats here; all natural goatiness.

    I can eat goat meat, no problem. I cannot eat anything made of goat milk. I'm convinced it's something genetic, just like one's aversion to cilantro
