Study shows that people who consume vegetables can have a brain 11 years younger than those who do not consume these foods

For the study, a food frequency questionnaire was applied to 1068 participants between the period from 2004 to 2013. Of these 960, they also received at least two assessments of cognitive abilities.

At baseline the participants were on average 81 years old and had no dementia. They had their cognitive and memory skills tested annually. Participants also completed the food frequency questionnaire, which evaluated how many times and how many half-cup portions they ate from green foliage.

The study divided participants into five groups based on how often they ate leafy vegetables and made a comparison between those who ate about 1.3 servings of vegetables per day and those who ate about 0.1 servings per day. Overall the participants' scores on the thought and memory tests decreased at a rate of 0.08% per annum. However, in 10 years the rate of cognitive decline for those who ate leafy vegetables was 0.05% per year. In general numbers, according to scientists, this difference would result in a brain 11 years younger in people consuming green leaves.

Scientists say further studies are needed to establish a cause-and-effect relationship between consumption of leafy vegetables and prevention of memory loss in aging, but he believes there is already a rich association between healthy eating and brain health care.

Often we have this attitude as a way of showing humility in the face of compliment.
