Publish Date: 13 June 2018
Author(s): International Food Information Council


A new study conducted by the International Food Information Council and supported by Abbott, found that heart and muscle health, brain health, and having enough energy were the four main health topics on the minds of older adults. Other findings from the survey of more than 1000 adults included that adult eating habits and health priorities may change with age and that the vast majority of respondents (88%) agreed it is never too late to make diet and lifestyle changes. The article also includes information about Abbott’s NHANES study and discusses the importance of protein in healthy aging.
