More Mediterranean Diet Benefits as Study Finds Link to Memory Preservation

  • Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have found a link between the Mediterranean Diet and the preservation of memory.
  • The researchers tested nearly 18,000 people over the age of 64, and found that subjects on the Mediterranean Diet reduced their chances of memory degradation by 19 percent.
  • There is no known cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s, so “modifiable activities, such as diet…may delay the onset of [dementia] symptoms,” said neurologist Georgios Tsivgoulis, M.D.
  • The Mediterranean Diet focuses on eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and healthy fats from olive oil, avocado, and fish. Wine is also allowed. You’ll avoid saturated fats, dairy, and meat.
