Mediterranean-Style Diet Protects Brain | MJH – Nutrition

Eat a Rainbow!

I’m getting ready for a new Coursera MOOC, Social Psychology – Wesleyan University, so I am starting to think about brain fitness again.  Here is good news for all of us who love to eat a rainbow!


There are many studies that indicate a Mediterranean-style diet may lower the risk of having a heart attack or stroke, and may even reduce cancer risk. A recent study from a university in Spain has shown that there might be brain protection, too. And as we all know, the brain ages as we get older, just as the rest of our body ages.
