A Mediterranean-style diet will lower your risk of dementia. Four new studies say the diet will help protect your brain as you age. The Mediterranean diet includes lots of fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, whole grains, poultry, fish and nuts.

Even those who followed the diet somewhat reduced their risk of brain decline by up to 24-percent.
