Studies show: Healthy diets, healthy brains

July 22, 2004, as reported by Harvard study suggests women who eat green vegetables may reduce their memory loss due to aging.

The study performed at Harvard's Brigham and Women's Hospital found that women in their 60s who ate more cruciferous and green leafy vegetables containing B vitamins and antioxidants such as broccoli, cauliflower and spinach went on to show less overall memory loss in their 70s.

Meanwhile, another study from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, indicated that men and women with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity in middle age ran a six-fold greater risk of acquiring Alzheimer’s disease than people without any of these traits.
