The Mediterranean diet includes fruits, vegetables, olive oil, beans and cereal grains such as wheat and rice, moderate amounts of fish, dairy and wine, and limited red meat and poultry. Contrary to earlier studies, a new study by a scientist at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland shows that older people who followed a Mediterranean diet did retain more brain volume over a three-year period than those who did not follow the diet as closely, but eating more fish and less meat was not related to changes in the brain.
