Diet Tied to Frailty in Older Adults

Frailty is a condition characterized by weakness, slowness, physical inactivity, self-reported exhaustion, and unintentional weight loss. In a recent study involving 2,154 seniors, researchers found that those with a poor-quality diet were over 40% more likely to be considered as frail four years later than older adults with healthier diets.
