A new study done at the university of Florida suggests that old people who eat less tend to retain their brain power longer.

In the study, rats fed diets with 40 percent fewer calories seemed to produce double the amounts of protein that protects brain cells, which in humans might slow the onslaught of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
