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.  This raises the exciting possibility that changes in diet are a viable strategy for enhancing cognitive abilities, protecting the brain from damage and counteracting the effects of aging.”  This is incredible, I will say!
