Shocking news flash: Eating junk food has been linked to an increased chance of getting dementia in the retirement age. Okay, if you think about it, this is hardly surprising. First of all, forget about the retirement age for a second, if you are young and eating junk food regularly, there is something already wrong with your thought process, if you know what I mean.
Second, do we really need a scientific study from Columbia Medical Center to tell us that what you eat can have a rather dramatic impact not only on how you look but also on your health? I do not think so. Isn’t it a common knowledge that eating fish, grass-fed beef, natural poultry, vegetables, leafy greens, berries, and nuts is a lot healthier than eating burgers, fries and drinking soda?
According to this study, there appears to be a link between the composition of your diet and the risk of dementia (a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease). Duh! In short, if you do not want to run the risk of getting Alzheimer’s, minimize your exposure to fast food. The added bonus? A good diet makes maintaining a healthy weight range a lot easier.
