I meant what I said. Does our eating habit affect our thought? Do some kind of foods help to improve our thinking, memory and processing power? When I was a kid and studying, my mother would always suggest me to eat light vegetarian food, especially green leafy vegetables, reasoning that veggie food is healthier for brain and help me in my studies. Also, elders at home would recommend eating almonds and fishes to improve memory, which I would follow religiously for some day and then give up when I would see no change since I would forget what I had read the previous day 🙂 . In this fast paced world, if we do not see change happening soon, we get disappointed and loose interest in it. We need everything quick, everything in short cut. Moreover, at an age when our senses crave for eating all kinds of addictive crappy food, even ambrosia suggested by elders seems like poison 🙂 . It is difficult to digest the suggestions given by elders, forget about digesting the foods they recommend. Was there sense in what they recommended after all? If veggie food and some type of foods in deed help in developing brain, wouldn’t everybody in this world be intelligent? How many scientists or inventors in this world are vegetarian or eat fish and almonds regularly. Why this perception of foods to be affecting our brain power? Does traditional and age-old belief hold any scientific truth? What does research say about it? Does that endorse what our elders suggest us by their experience or what they followed as a tradition? Let’s turn to some facts and see.
