Health - HEALTH NEWS - Eating leafy greens may help prevent memory loss

"A salad a day keeps brains 11 years younger," the Mail Online reports.

This oddly specific headline was prompted by new research into whether eating a diet high in leafy green vegetables protects against age-related memory loss and decline in thinking skills (cognitive abilities).

This study found eating approximately 1 serving a day of leafy green vegetables and foods rich in certain vitamins, such as vitamin K, may have some protective effect. But it's too early to say such a diet could prevent dementia. Some participants were only followed-up for 2 years, with an average follow-up time of 4.7 years. This is problematic given it can take much longer for people to develop memory loss and dementia. A longer follow-up period would have provided more reliable results.
