My husband and I love Mediterranean food, but according to a new study on cognitive decline, it's going to a lot more for his brain than mine.
No, it's not a gender issues, it's race.
The study, wich followed 2,326 older adults (70-79 years old) over eight years found a "significant correlation" between the MedDiet and a slower rate of decline among African Americans (my husband).
There appeared to be no correlation for Caucasians.

Some typical things include: olives, hummus, dolmas, feta cheese, eggplant, tomatoes, nuts, seafood, seeds, yogurt and whole grains.
