Mediterranean Diet Boosts Brain Functioning, Lowers Alzheimer's Risk: REVIEW

HUFFINGTON POST - 9/4/2103: Eating a Mediterranean diet -- rich in produce, olive oil and fish -- improves brain functioning and lowers the risk of Alzheimer's disease, according to a new review of the available research.

The review, published in the journal Epidemiology, includes 12 studies, nine of which showed an association between eating a Mediterranean diet and having lower Alzheimer's risk, improved cognitive functioning and lower rate of cognitive decline.

However, the researchers did not find definitive associations between eating a Mediterranean diet and having decreased risk of mild cognitive impairment(considered to be more severe cognitive decline than that which comes from aging, but not yet full-blown dementia).
