Feeling KOOL – Older Men’s Diet

Older men may gain a boost physically, mentally and socially if they eat a diet rich in meat and fish, according to a new study from Japan.

This study of more than 1,000 older adults suggested that men who ate the most meat and fish reduced their odds of mental and physical decline by 39 percent, compared with men who ate the least animal protein.

But the same association was not seen in women. Nor were the same benefits linked to proteins from plants, the researchers found.
