Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that in a recent Annals of Internal Medicine study, people who followed a Mediterranean eating plan with added extra-virgin olive oil reduced their risk for diabetes by 40 percent compared with low-fat dieters?

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Fish Oil on the Brain?
EPA/DHA Improves Cognition.

A new study to appear FASEB Journalassessed if eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), commonly found in fatty fish and fish oil supplements, were risk factors for cognitive decline.


The participants were put through an intensive series of cognitive tests such as memory tests using a list of words, an attention test to repeat lists of numbers forward and backward, and a test of organization and planning involving copying complex figures.


After 2 years of follow up, the researchers discovered that only 27% of the participants got sufficient EPA and DHA in their diets (250 mg. per day). Being in the lowest four groups of EPA and DHA intake was predictive of cognitive decline over 2 years.


Steve: The takeaway? Omega-3 fatty acids from fatty fish and fish oil supplements are beneficial for maintaining cognitive health, and many of us do not have an adequate intake of these nutrients.
