Eat your way to a BIG­GER BRAIN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - B+S -

If you want to keep your health in good nick, go Dutch. Sim­i­lar to the Mediter­ranean diet, the Dutch way of eat­ing fo­cuses on a mix of fruit, veg, nuts, whole­grains, fish and limited sugar. Ac­cord­ing to re­searchers from Eras­mus Univer­sity in the Nether­lands, this combo could help pro­tect your nog­gin. Dur­ing the study, sci­en­tists found that peo­ple who fol­lowed the Dutch diet had larger brains than those who didn’t, and since in­creased brain vol­ume has been linked to im­proved brain age­ing, the diet could play a sig­nif­i­cant role in pre­serv­ing your smarts later in life.
