Aerobic exercise are associated with better cognition (the ability of the brain to process information and cross them, responding to a stimulus) in young people. It showed what a study by University of Gothenburg (Sweden) with more than 1 million males aged 15 to 18 years and published in the latest edition of "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."
The conditioning was gauged by the exercise tests. Those with better conditions also did better on IQ tests, especially in the areas of verbal comprehension and logical thinking.
In food, as in life, there’s often a good reason for everything. There are hidden teachings and gifts waiting to burst forth from the most unlikely of places. If you’re like most people, you’ll tend to appreciate sweet life experiences much more so than the bitter ones. You’ll also tend to gravitate towards the sweeter foods rather than the edibles that are bitter to the tongue. Of course, this makes perfect sense. Personally, I’d much prefer the sweet life, the fun stuff, the goodies, and anything that puts an automatic smile on my face. Likewise, if something leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, then it’s clearly the kind of food or experience that I’m not interested in repeating. But might there be a nutritional value to bitter? Is it possible that there’s even a brilliance to bitter that not only fuels our personal potential, but our metabolic potential as well?

Ann Arbor MI (SPX) Apr 17, 2013 - It's been known for decades that animals such as chimpanzees seek out medicinal herbs to treat their diseases....
..plants remain the most promising source of future pharmaceuticals, studies of animal medication may lead the way in discovering new drugs to relieve human suffering..
"Perhaps the biggest surprise for us was that animals like fruit flies and butterflies can choose food for their offspring that minimizes the impacts of disease in the next generation," Hunter said. "There are strong parallels with the emerging field of epigenetics in humans, where we now understand that dietary choices made by parents influence the long-term health of their children."...
...study of animal medication will have direct relevance for human food production. Disease problems in agricultural organisms can worsen when humans interfere with the ability of animals to medicate...
I love that we are seeing confirmation and validation of the benefits of including plants in our dietary choices. It's sad to me though that we, in our infinite wisdom, always come back to pharmaceuticals and creating new drugs to try to accomplish only what nature has mastered over millenia.
