    High-fat diet makes you dumber

    You knew that eating high-fat foods made you fat, but it turns out that these foods also make you stupid.
    Honey, does this cheeseburger make me look stupid?
    In fact, yes — new research shows that fatty diets break down neurons in your brain, making you stupid.
    In the study, groups of mice were fed high- and low-fat diets. After three months, the mice on the fatty diet were not only obese, but lost synapses.
    “What happens in obesity is (brain cells called) microglia stop moving...and start eating synapses," Dr. Alexis M. Stranahan of the Medical College of Georgia told Science News. "When microglia start eating synapses, the mice don't learn as effectively."
    The good news is that the damage can be repaired, according to the study published in Brain, Behavior and Immunity.
    Once scientists put the mice back on a low-fat diet, brain function returned.

    Exactly the opposite finding from other studies of humans. On high fat/protein lower carb diets people reported feeling sharper mentally.

    Virtually every medical study is agenda based because of who funds it.

    By the way, a Cheeseburger has plenty of carbs. Doubly so if eaten with the usual sides.

    THIS is the one time a Cheeseburger photo would have been appropriate, and you don't post one!

    High fat diets clog the arteries in your brain slowly cutting off the blood supply.
    Its one off the main causes of alzheimers not to mention strokes.

    This.

    I've pretty much gotten rid of all grains from my diet a couple of years ago. I eat plenty of veggies, meat (including bacon, pork and other high fat meats), eggs and nuts now. Pretty much got rid of my irritatable bowel problems, I have a lot more energy, I lost the last little chub I had, and I gained a bunch of muscle. Pretty good deal.

    These three documentaries do a good job of explaining all this. Basically most dietary advice is just wrong. But there are agendas at work (agriculture lobby, drug lobby, anti-meat lobby, etc) that mean it will take a long time to change things.

    I agree. Who the hell funded this study anyway?
