Diet high in processed foods linked to memory impairment

2021-10-28

An animal-model study published in the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity linked a diet high in processed foods to memory impairment, when compared with a healthy diet. "These findings indicate that consumption of a processed diet can produce significant and abrupt memory deficits -- and in the aging population, rapid memory decline has a greater likelihood of progressing into neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease," said researcher Ruth Barrientos.
