Study suggests people over 75 can eat whatever they want

MSN Now reports that a recent study shows a healthy diet may not matter for those folks over the 75 year mark.

The study says a diet high in fat and sugar, like the diet of some Americans, has no negative impact on the health of the elderly in a significant way.

There was also no link found between a 'Western diet' and widespread diabetes, heart disease or death.
