Eating Leafy Greens Prevents Dementia

An American study has recently proven that eating leafy greens such as cabbage and spinach can prevent dementia in older age. The study showed that people who eat more greens as part of their diet have brains that are 11 years younger than those who eat no vegetables at all.

Even a small serving of greens everyday can help improve brain function and memory in the long run. Dr Martha Morris, of Rush University Medical Centre in Chicago who led the study says: “Adding a daily serving of green, leafy vegetables to your diet may be a simple way to foster your brain health.”
