We’ve already heard about the good things a Mediterranean diet can do for the heart and for weight management, but here’s another benefit: according to a Rush University study, the foods that are staples in Mediterranean cuisine are linked to slower rates of cognitive decline in adults.

The study was published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
