What if the food you eat might give you brain damage?
It might sound like a concept from a science fiction movie, but actually, it’s a real possibility. A recent study conducted in Australia found that people who eat a lot of processed food have a smaller hippocampus.
For the uninitiated, hippocampus is the part of the brain which is crucial for memory and learning. It was also found that people who eat mostly fresh and whole foods have a bigger hippocampus when compared to people who eat junk food.
Drinking one or more artificially sweetened drinks per day were more likely to develop dementia compared to people who drank only one drink per week.
So if you don’t want to get brain damage, it’s about time you kicked out all the junk food away from your diet.
