    Less shrinkage: This is your aging brain on the Mediterranean diet

    The aging brain is a shrinking brain, and a shrinking brain is, generally speaking, a brain whose performance and reaction time are declining: That is a harsh reality of growing older.

    But new research shows that brain shrinkage is less pronounced in older folks whose diets hew closely to the traditional diet of Mediterranean peoples -- including lots of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and olive oil, little red meat and poultry, and regular, moderate consumption of fish and red wine.

    What the article doesn't mention is organic food.

    Organic food tastes better and is much healthier for you. Whenever available, choose organic in the grocery store for a healthier life.
