Study shows, healthy diets linked to larger brain volumes

Research from the Journal Neurology indicates that “people who eat healthy diets may have larger brain volumes.” For the study, investigators “asked more than 4,000 older people in the Netherlands (average age: 66) about what they ate and analyzed brain scans over 10 years.” The study revealed that individuals who “ate healthier diets resembling the Mediterranean diet – rich in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats from sources like fish, and low in red meat – showed larger total brain volume.” In addition, they “had more grey and white matter” and a larger hippocampus.
Who wouldn’t like a larger brain?

Better load up on the fruits and vegetables and put away the Oreos and Doritos . . .
