A report in the journal Neurology studied elderly people and found that people with diets high in vitamins B,C,D and E did better on mental function tests and had bigger brains.

Those with high levels of trans fats performed worse on tests of mental ability and had smaller brains.

The study suggests it's good to limit trans fats often found in fried foods and to eats a lot of fruits, vegetables and fatty fish.
