Mediterranean diet may help prevent decline in thinking and memory skills

(April 29, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Alabama - The Mediterranean diet may prevent thinking and memory decline, according to a report published in Neurology. Researchers studied data on over 17,000 individuals with an average age of 64. Participants reported their dietary habits and underwent tests measuring their thinking and memory skills. 7% of participants developed impairments in their thinking and memory skills. Results showed that among healthy people, those who most closely followed a Mediterranean diet were at 18% reduced risk of developing impairments with their thinking and memory skills.
