Dear Aysha, Yes of coarse eating a healthy organic diet helps elderly in reducing the incidence of chronic diseases. Eating wholesome, natural foods can prevent, delay or even possibly reverse chronic illnesses older people have. Eating more organic fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans, and reducing the amount of meats and dairy products consumed, has been scientifically proven to lessen the risk (and pain) of certain diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and dementia. All of these chronic illnesses have inflammation in common, which worsens when people consume animal proteins found in meats and dairy products, Instead, people can incorporate broccoli, beans, bananas, quinoa, sweet potatoes and nuts or hummus into their diets. Apart from this there are certain life style modifications to be done which are as follows:
Avoid Tobacco Use
Maintain a Healthy Weight
Maintain Daily Physical Activity and Limit Television Watching
Eat a Healthy Diet
