The study notes, however, that parental responses can be detrimental to the long-term health of the children, leading to unhealthy food preferences in the future, for example.
14 Sep 2018 --- There may be a way to delay the inevitable decline of cognitive function as we age: consuming dietary fiber, according to a new study from the University of Illinois. As mammals age, immune cells in the brain known as microglia become chronically inflamed.

Although the study was conducted in mice, the researchers are comfortable extending the findings to humans, if only in a general sense.
