Mediterranean Diet May Reduce Risk Of Dementia.

HealthDay (9/6, Preidt) reports that research published in Epidemiology suggests that “eating a Mediterranean diet may be good for your brain and might reduce the risk of dementia.” Investigators looked at data from 12 studies. The researchers found that “nine studies found that people with higher adherence to a Mediterranean diet had better brain function, lower rates of mental decline and a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease,” although “close adherence to a Mediterranean diet had an inconsistent effect on mild cognitive impairment.”
