In this study the researchers investigated associations between the dietary Inflammatory Index and measures of brain volume and cerebral small vessel disease (Van Lent, D,, 20222).

The participants filled out food frequency questionnaires and had brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

The researchers found that higher pro-inflammatory diet scores, averaged across a maximum of three time points, were associated with smaller total brain volume.


They also found that higher dietary inflammatory scores were associated with smaller total gray matter volume.

The food we eat affects us in numerous ways and we now have more and more research to validate it.

A low glycemic index, high nutrient plant-based diet is recommended to slow aging and increase health span.
