A diet rich in fish, nuts and fruit may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center studied older adults.

Their findings show eating salad, nuts, tomatoes, poultry, fruits and dark, green leafy vegetables was associated with a reduced risk of the degenerative disease.

Reducing the consumption of high-fat dairy, red meat and butter was also associated with reduced risk.

The study appeared in the journal Archives of Neurology.
