The Impact of Different Diets on Quality of Life

Dr. Uche Odiatu

Many of us choose to eat healthily so that we can stay physically fit and look great. Seldom do we think about the effect of diet on how well our brains work. The truth is, everything we eat has either an inflammatory or an anti-inflammatory effect on the brain and the body. And given the evidence that many long term degenerative brain diseases are inflammatory based, who wouldn’t want an anti-inflammatory diet and a better functioning brain?

In this episode of CDA Oasis Live, Dr. John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks CDA, talks to Dr. Uche Odiatu about how we can promote brain function by choosing better quality foods that douse the flames of chronic inflammation.

“The food we eat, when chosen poorly, is the most inflammatory thing in our lives. If you want to encourage good brain function, choose better quality foods.”

Dr. Uche outlines the basis and the dangers of oxidative stress, highlights specific anti-oxidant food types, and emphasises the importance of choosing your food mindfully.
