Japan has rapidly been becoming an aged society. Most of people are eager to grow older healthily. One of the most important things for aged people is how to prevent risks for dementia. It is well known that hypertention, hyperlipemia and diabetes are risk factors for vasucular dementia. Moreover recently it comes to be clear that diabetes increase the risk not only for vasucular dementia but also for Alzheimer’s disease. Mediterranean diet is well-known to prevent Alzheimer disease. A number of prospective epidemiologic studies have found association between nutrition and dementia. For example, n‐3fatty acid, vitamins and polyphenol may be associated with decrease of the risk for dementia. It may also be useful to prevent metabolic syndrome before aging. It is necessary for all to mind the relationship between diet and dementia.
