Did You Know?… About Brain Health

2 Nov

  
Did you know that a Western diet high in saturated fat can shrink the brain?

A study in Australia shows how the brain of people consuming an unhealthy diet, characterized of meat, hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and soft drinks, showed a decrease in volume versus the brain of people consuming a healthy diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, grilled fish and salad.

This ‘brain shrinkage’ is associated with neurodegenerative disorders, depression, impaired learning and memory.

The good news is that if you eat a healthy diet, you can promote the growth of new neurons and have a healthy brain and life.
Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!
