"Walnuts may have a beneficial effect in reducing the risk, delaying the onset or slowing the progression of Alzheimer's disease," the Daily Express quoted Chauhan as saying.

According to the results, vitamin E and flavanoids in walnuts helped destroy harmful free radical chemicals that cause dementia.

The results represent a breakthrough in the study of how the brain decays.
