Answer

Although no definitive dietary recommendations can be made, in general, nutritional patterns that appear beneficial for AD prevention fit the Mediterranean diet. Following this type of diet, along with recommendations for physical activity, has the added benefit of lowering the risk of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. [141]
