Barcelona, Spain, April 28, 2017. A study of over 900 older adults whose dietary patterns had been assessed multiple times over more than two decades showed that those with higher quality diets across the lifespan performed better on measures of physical function and mobility. Sian Robinson, PhD, professor of nutritional epidemiology at the University of Southampton, UK, said these results indicate that better nutrition in mid-life could help people maintain their quality of life and independence as they age.
