SCIENTISTS STUDYING THE EFFECTS OF EXERCISE AND NUTRITION ON BRAIN POWER
I would like to mention the work of a remarkable scientist: Fernando Gomez-Pinilla PhD., Professor of Neurosurgery and Physiological Science from UCLA has researched the effects of eating unhealthy foods, foods based in high fats, on our intelligence: According to Professor Pinilla “ Diet, exercise and sleep have the potential to alter our brain health and mental function.
