    Earlier studies had shown the correlation between unhealthy diets and reduced brain size in mice, but the new study published this week in the journalBMC Medicinewas the first to actually measure humans’ gray matter and compare it against their dietary behavior.

    Those who ate sweet drinks, salted snacks, and processed meats had smaller left hippocampi, while those who ate vegetables, fruit and fish had bigger left hippocampi, the authors concluded. The connection existed independent of factors such as gender, exercise and smoking.

    However, the study does not appear to draw a cause-and-effect relationship between the two, just an association.
