The Consistency Project
on Diet, Cognitive Function, & Dementia

Soundbyte summary: The value of your diet is not whether you ate a specific food or not; the value of the diet is determined by the collection of the foods in it. This is known as a “dietary pattern.” While the MIND Diet is associated with less risk of dementia, it’s because of the whole dietary pattern – not specific foods in it.

Topics include:
• The difference between dementia and mild cognitive impairment 
• What the MIND diet is and its possible role in dementia prevention 
• The distinction between diets and dietary patterns 
• Why the greater number of limitations may be the secret to the MIND diet 
• What reverse causation is and why we need to be wary of it
