Junk food found to shrink the brain !!
So it seems that a junk food diet comprising of meat, hamburgers, chips and soft drinks may in fact have the effect of reducing the volume of the left hippocampus in the brain and in contrast a diet containing fresh fish and vegetables may have the opposite affect according to a recent study involving 250 participants.
Other previous studies involving animals have also demonstrated that depression and cognitive health are similarly affected by diet quality.
In previous studies involving animals, it has been observed that diets high in saturated fats and refined sugars have a very negative impact on proteins in the brain. Again in contrast to this foods high in anti-oxidants and foods high in Omega 3’s actually have the opposite effect.
