Daily Leafy Greens Consumption In Seniors Tied To Slower Cognitive Deterioration

HealthDay (3/31, Mozes) reports that research presented at the American Society for Nutrition’s annual meeting and funded by the National Institutes of Health suggests that “a single serving of leafy green vegetables each day may help keep dementia away.” After assessing “the eating habits and mental ability of more than 950 older adults for an average of five years,” researchers found that seniors “who consumed one or two servings of foods such as spinach, kale, mustard greens and/or collards daily experienced slower mental deterioration than those who ate no leafy greens at all.”
