Giving Up Meat Can Trigger Dementia

For decades, mainstream doctors told us that we should eat less meat and eggs. They warned that animal foods were full of saturated fat and cholesterol that would make us put on weight and lead to heart disease. 

This “common wisdom” has been widely debunked. Even the American Heart Association now admits it was wrong to warn people against eating eggs. 

Eating less meat is a bad idea, too. Here’s why…

Choline is an essential nutrient. That means it is crucial to normal functioning, but your body cannot make it. You must get it from an outside source. Choline is necessary for the formation of acetylcholine. It’s a neurotransmitter. 

A new study found that people who don’t get enough choline have a higher chance of developing dementia. Earlier studies have linked low choline with poor memory and mental sharpness.[1] 

The main dietary sources of choline? Meat and eggs.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition analyzed the diets of 2,500 men.[2]

Researchers found that subjects with the highest choline intake were less likely to develop dementia. Their risk was 28% lower than subjects who ate the least choline.

High-choline subjects out-performed low-choline ones on tests of language and memory skills.

Eat Meat for Better Brain Health

The men in the study got their choline by eating plenty of meat and eggs. Follow their example to slash your dementia risk…

  • Meat. Always choose organic, grass-fed beef. Factory-farmed red meat is grain-fed. And it’s often pumped full of hormones and antibiotics.

Grass-fed beef also contains a big dose of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation.

  • Eggs. Not all eggs are created equal. you should buy eggs from pasture-raised, free-roaming chickens. Factory-farmed eggs can contain antibiotics and pesticides.

Meat and eggs are natural, nutrient-dense foods. Don’t let misguided mainstream advice rob you of their important brain benefits.   

Editor’s Note: You might be surprised to learn that no human clinical study links red meat to any health problem… And that veganism is associated with cognitive impairment, mental illness, and osteoporosis.

Discover the bad science behind the meatless movement…and why giving up animal foods won’t make you healthier or help the environment.
