A Daily Serving of Leafy Greens

Daily serving of leafy greens may help slow age-related decline in memory, thinking skills

In “Science Now,” the Los Angeles Times (12/20, Healy) reports that “older people who ate at least one serving of leafy greens a day had a slower rate of decline on tests of memory and thinking skills than did people who rarely or never ate these vegetables,” researchers concluded. The study revealed that “after almost five years, regular consumers of such veggies as kale, spinach, collard greens and lettuce enjoyed a mental edge that was the equivalent of 11 years in age.” The findings were published online Dec. 20 in Neurology.

Most Americans not eating enough fruits and vegetables, CDC says

According to TIME (11/17, Ducharme), a CDC report published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that “the vast majority of Americans are not eating enough fruits and vegetables.”

The New York Daily News (11/17, Gibbs) reported that “an average 12% of Americans ate their daily recommended amount of fruit, while an average of less than 9% ate their daily recommended amount of vegetables in 2015, says” the report.

Enjoy 5 a day—eat at least 2 servings of fruit and at least 3 servings of vegetables each day (see box 8 for serving sizes). Choose fresh, frozen, dried, or canned forms and a variety of colors and kinds. Choose dark-green leafy vegetables, orange fruits and vegetables, and cooked dry beans and peas often.
