A recent study published in the scientific journal "Neurology" suggests that eating more vegetables can slow down normal age related cognitive decline.

The study followed thousands of participants over a six-year period of time to see how dietary differences affect memory. The results suggest that cognitive decline slows by 40% for people who eat at least 2.8 servings of vegetables a day. Interestingly, older participants experienced the greatest benefit.

Of the different types of vegetables, green leafy vegetables, like spinach, had the largest effect. This may be due to the high amounts of Vitamin E that are contained in these kinds of vegetables. So do as your Mom said and, "Eat your vegetables!"
