Study Shows Healthy Diet May Prevent Memory Loss


A new study led by researchers at the Scottsdale-based Mayo Clinic in Arizona supports the idea that what's good for your heart is good for your brain. The study, released last month, suggests that eating too much may double the risk for memory loss in people age 70 and older… "We observed a dose-response pattern which simply means: the higher the amount of calories consumed each day, the higher the risk of mild cognitive impairment," said study author Dr. Yonas E. Geda, a neurologist and psychiatrist with the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
