Heh. Just applying the same logic to headline writing as those stories on calcium studies that wind up headlined "Drink More Milk!" or studies on Omega-3s that say "You Must Eat Fish For Your Heart." The truth behind this one is not quite so sexy, but it's still worth noting: "Eating vegetables like broccoli and spinach may help older women retain some memory abilities later on, while avoiding obesity in middle age lowers the risk of later Alzheimer's disease in both sexes, new studies suggest." In other words, even if veggies won't make you smarter now, they'll help stop you from getting stupider earlier.
