Though not exactly pro-food, news of a 9-month research initiative from Swedish scientists have made claims that excessive fast food consumption may have a positive connection to Alzheimer’s. The researchers examined the brains of mice to conclude:
We now suspect that a high intake of fat and cholesterol in combination with genetic factors … can adversely affect several brain substances, which can be a contributory factor in the development of Alzheimer’s.
Though the research and results are fairly fresh, this is just one of those of periodic reminders to eat with moderation. For more information on this research, feel free to follow through to the Reuters article. Eat on!
