Expatriate health insurance customers might be interested to learn that they could lower their risk of developing dementia by following a healthy diet.
While there is little evidence for any specific diet, Dr Susanne Sorensen, head of research at the Alzheimer's Society, explained that there is some very strong evidence that a balanced diet and a normal weight during adulthood will lower the chances of developing the condition.
"A healthy diet with a variety of fruit and vegetables that enables a person to maintain a normal body weight is likely to reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure or heart disease, both of which put a person at greater risk of developing dementia," she said.
The comments are supported to an extent by a recent study from the Karolinska Institutet, which revealed that individuals who are overweight or obese during mid-life are more likely to develop dementia in later life.
Those who were deemed to be in these weight categories were 80 per cent more likely to have the condition in later life than those of a healthy weight.
