The Mediterranean Diet Wins Again

A new study printed in the September 11, 2007 edition of Neurology reports that in a group of Alzheimers patients, those who ate a diet close to the Mediterranean Diet were 76% less likely to die during the ten-year study period. Heart disease rates in the 16 countries that border the Mediterranean Sea are less than in the USA.

We really gotta look harder at our diet folks. Are you hearing of more and more older people with Alzheimers and dementia--or is it just me?

Take a deep breath,
