He then took it upon himself to become an advocate of care for the elderly in Africa. He has created awareness in elderly care by writing to the government to establish care facilities and assisted living homes across Nigeria and Africa so that the elderly could benefit from such establishments. He has established elderly communities in rural areas and has involved students to volunteer to care for the elderly in rural areas during their holidays.

Will a Salad a Day Keep Memory Problems Away?
Eating about one serving per day of green, leafy vegetables may be linked to a slower rate of brain aging, according to a study published in the online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.So in essence, a salad a day may be beneficial to brain health.
The study found that people who ate at least one serving of green, leafy vegetables a day had a slower rate of decline on tests of memory and thinking skills than people who never or rarely ate these vegetables. The difference between the two groups was the equivalent of being 11 years younger in age, according to study author Martha Clare Morris, ScD, of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
