Why Eating Salad Every Day Keeps the Brain 10 Years Younger

Eat leafy greens now to help prevent dementia later

Nutritionist and epidemiologist Martha Morris from Chicago's Rush University decided to study how eating leafy greens might affect memory problems and cognitive decline. Her research team found that people who ate 1-2 servings of leafy green vegetables every day would have fewer memory problems and cognitive decline compared to those who didn't. She believes that those who love vegetables had brains that were about 11 years younger.
