The article reports on a study, which found that eating vegetables had more of an impact at limiting memory decline that eating fruits. The study was conducted in Chicago, Illinois, and examined subjects who were 65 years and older. According to the article, consumption of green leafy vegetables helped to reduce memory loss by up to 40%. Consuming fats with the vegetables may help as well because fats aid in vitamin E absorption.
