Healthy Diet Doesn't Matter After 75

You've heard of Angie's List right? It's the web site that customers can post reviews of contractors to doctors, roofers to plumbers, dog walkers to cake decorators. Some of the reviews are positive but there are many more negative comments. Well now contractors, doctors, roofers, plumbers and service staff have their own website to review customers! It's called NastyClient.com and for $16 a month, you can read reviews of good and bad (probably mostly bad) customers and even share you own story.
There might be a bright spot when it comes to getting older.
A new study suggests people who have passed the 75-year mark that diet doesn't really matter. A diet high in sugar and fat doesn’t make a difference and overly restrictive diets may not improve health at all.
The study, which appears in the Journal of Nutrition Health and Aging, followed a group of 449 people for five years. Participants were on average 76.5 years old at the beginning of the study; and were categorized as eating according to one of three different dietary patterns: “More healthful” which had relatively higher intakes of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, eggs, nuts, legumes and dairy; “Westernlike” which was characterized by an intake of starchy vegetables, refined grains, meats, fried poultry and fish, oils and fats; and “low produce, high sweets” which was defined by high saturated fat, and low dietary fiber and vitamin C intakes.
During the course of the study, researchers identified whether the participants developed cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), and metabolic syndrome. The results revealed no connection between dietary pattern and prevalence of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, or mortality in the participants. Even though there was evidence of increased risk of hypertension in people who followed the “low produce, high sweets” pattern, the conclusion was nonetheless surprising.
And not only that, but recent reports "suggest that there may be survival benefits associated with overweight and mild obesity status among the elderly,” Jensen noted.
So if you make it past 75, have fun and eat whatever you want! You've earn it! :)
