‘ Research Suggests Junk Food Makes You Lazy ‘

#AceFoodNews – September 11 – We already know how junk-food makes you lazy. Now, new research suggests high-fat, high-calorie, sugary foods may actually discourage you from trying new foods.

In fact, salty, fatty, sugary foods may rewire the brain’s reward mechanism, rendering them as addictive as some narcotics.

In a report published in Frontiers in Psychology, researchers describe how rats given a junk food diet seem to lose all interest in other types of food. This works against the natural structure of the brain, which is wired to seek out a diverse diet and to avoid overeating. Not surprisingly, this leads to unhealthy eating habits as well as weight gain.

Half of the rats in the study were fed a high-calorie “cafeteria” diet consisting of cookies, pies, dumplings, and cakes for two weeks, while the other half (the control group) were given a standard diet.

I look after my mother as part of my life, she is 90 and has dementia ,but l did a study at college looking at this very subject! The main causes being studied back in the 90’s was the exhaust fumes from cars, also various foods and materials we use, and also what they call “slip of the tongue syndrome” which starts due to our pace of life, trying to cram too much into the neural pathways of our brain! The investigation goes on and a great post shared, liked and sent to my network! #AceHealthNews
