Junk foods that are high in refined sugars and saturated fats cause all sorts of problems in your brain. These sugary, fatty foods slow down the production of brain cells, which impacts your memory and learning ability – and could lead to Alzheimer’s.
Junk food also messes with the parts of your brain that control food intake and regulate your weight. So eating junk leads to – you guessed it – eating more junk.
But a new study has shown that fish oil can slow down those effects.
So next time you want to inhale an entire package of Oreos, consider popping a fish oil pill first. (NY Daily News)
