Although many studies strongly suggest a relationship between what we eat and long term brain health, the picture is confused and confusing.  Researchers are increasingly looking at ‘food synergy’, the idea that, although the effects of single foods or nutrients may be small, when you combine them in a healthy diet they can pack a powerful punch.  In particular a Mediterranean style of eating is associated with longer life expectancy and lower rates of chronic diseases, including dementia. Many experts now argue that ‘food synergy’ is likely to be more important that the effects of any single nutrient and that a combination of dietary factors is likely to have the greatest effect on long term health. This might explain why the results of some studies we have looked at have been unexpected or disappointing and why supplements don’t always seem to be beneficial.

THE iconic Healthy Eating Pyramid has had its first makeover in nearly two decades, with sugar and junk food completely banned, and replaced with “healthy fats” and niche food items such as tofu and quinoa.

Nutrition Australia’s new pyramid will no longer spruik even a modicum of junk food: today, it is all about legumes, soy milk, soba noodles and tofu, which have never before been given a place on the previously three-tiered food pyramid. Nutrition Australia chief executive Lucinda Hancock said that the whole grains food group has been expanded to include “quinoa and soba noodles, and the dairy section includes soy milk to represent calcium-fortified dairy alternatives”.
