"Brain Protecting Foods"

"The best sources of B12 are liver and shellfish—foods that seniors are warned to avoid because they contain high levels of cholesterol."

Chef-doctor Jemichel asks DR. NEAL BARNARD, MD and Margarita Restrepo:
What are your suggestions for real "Brain Protecting" foods that are sources for B12? .........

B12 deficiency is positively linked to memory problems as presented by the Weston A. Price Foundation:

"Accumulating evidence that vitamin B12 supports healthy brain function comes from the Chicago Health and Aging Project (Neurology, Sept 27, 2011;77(13):1276-1282). The study found that methylmalonate, a marker of vitamin B12 deficiency, is associated with a reduction of brain volume and so may contribute to cognitive problems. An earlier study, published in the same journal, found that people who tended to eat vitamin B12-rich foods are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s than those who did not (Neurology, Oct 19, 2010). The best sources of B12 are liver and shellfish—foods that seniors are warned to avoid because they contain high levels of cholesterol."[1]

The reference made (apparently by DR. NEAL BARNARD, MD) to "Saturated 'bad' fat—found in milk, cheese, and meat" that was attributed to the Chicago Health and Aging Project (CHAP) is rather curious in light of the CHAP findings on the "accumulating evidence that vitamin B12 supports healthy brain function" especially given that "milk, cheese, and meat" are also sources of B12. However their are two different kinds of dairy and meat products. Ruminating animals (like dairy cows) produce a different superior quality of milk when feeding on their natural diet of mixed live pasture vs confinement dairy cows being fed grain (and worse) that make the cows sick and therefore are put on antibiotics. Consequently this inferior milk is required to be pasteurized supposedly in an attempt to minimize the impact of ill health in the unwary consumers who consume this product. However and possibly more serious is the fact that homogenization destroys the integrity of the fat globules which produce fragments that would not otherwise cross the blood-brain barrier. This is the area where new research should focus! In any case most likely the diets that CHAP analyzed included the comparatively dangerous milk/dairy as well as grain-fed meat.
