  • 10 Worst Foods For Your BrainWhat NOT To Eat!

  • More than your appearance, what you put in your mouth affects your brain.

  • The food you eat can increase your brain power, stimulate cognitive function and improve your

  • memory.

  • On the other hand, some foods can have a devastating effect on your brain, and it's best to consume

  • them moderately, to limit their negative impact.

  • So, avoid these common foods if you want a healthy brain!

  • Number 1 - Sugar

  • Sugar and sugar rich foods can affect your memory and your intelligence in the long run,

  • not to mention that they can also lead to a variety of different neurological problems

  • over the years.

  • In a nutshell, sugar is known to decrease the brain activity by interfering with the

  • insulin's capacity to help the brain cells do their normal work, thus leading to memory

  • loss.

  • The more sugar you consume, the more prone you are to experiencing learning impairment

  • or memory loss over the years.

  • Besides this, the addictive nature of sugar is widely known to everybody, and this has

  • some severe long-term consequences that take their toll on one's cognitive skills.

  • Number 2 - Trans Fats

  • Trans fats cause a series of problems, from heart-related issues to elevated cholesterol

  • and obesity.

  • However, they are bad for your brain as well, as they make your brain more sluggish, they

  • affect your reflexes and the quality of your brain response.

  • Not to mention that they increase the risk of stroke!

  • Trans fats can also have other effects on your brain - if consumed for too long, they

  • can result in a sort of brain shrinkage that is somewhat similar to the shrinkage caused

  • by Alzheimer's disease.

  • Number 3 - High Sodium Foods

  • Everybody knows that salty foods affect your blood pressure and they are very hard on your

  • heart.

  • However, research suggests that food that contain high amounts of salt can affect your

  • cognitive function and impair your ability to think.

  • Otherwise stated, salty foods affect your intelligence!

  • As a matter of fact, the consumption of salty foods have been shown to have the same effects

  • as drugs, as they cause harsh withdrawal symptoms and cravings for salty foods.

  • Number 4 - Fast Food

  • While convenient, fast food is anything but healthy.

  • Plus, it can make you fat, given the high number of calories.

  • Beyond that, fast food contain ingredients that, in high doses, are bad for your brain.

  • This includes trans fat, saturated fat, sodium, sugar, and a shit load of fillers you can't

  • even pronounce.

  • It's been shown that prolonged fast food consumption can affect the production of dopamine,

  • which is commonly referred to as the hormone of happiness.

  • And if the brain's natural production of dopamine is affected, this can lead to anxiety

  • and depression.

  • In addition, fast food can also affect your capacity to focus, your overall learning capacity

  • as well as your memory, which may speed up the cognitive decline that normally appears

  • as we age.

  • Number 5 - Foods That Contain Pesticide Residue

  • Fruits and vegetables are among the healthiest foods you can eat.

  • But, commercially grown fruits and veggies are commonly contaminated with pesticides.

  • Increased intake of foods that contain pesticide residue leads to loss of neurons in some areas

  • of the brain.

  • And long-term exposure to pesticides can kill brain cells and trigger symptoms that are

  • linked with Parkinson's disease.

  • Number 6 - Tuna

  • Do you still eat tuna because you think it's good for you?

  • Well, the latest scientific research shows that eating tuna can be hazardous to your

  • health.

  • Tuna flesh is loaded with heavy metals because of the contaminated fish they eat.

  • Tuna fish also accumulate toxic mercury in their flesh as a result of industrial pollution.

  • The side effects of mercury poisoning include cognitive impairment and coordination problems.

  • So, the toxicity greatly outweighs any possible health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Number 7 - Microwave Popcorn

  • Who doesn't love popcorn?!

  • It's fast, convenient and delicious.

  • But, microwave popcorn is possibly the absolute worst food for your brain!

  • It usually contains butter flavoring with the additive Diacetyl.

  • It's already established that this chemical causes a serious condition calledmicrowave

  • popcorn lung.”

  • But, Diacetyl is also able to cross the blood-brain barrier, a defense which prevents harmful

  • substances from entering the brain.

  • It causes beta-amyloid clumping which is a significant indicator of Alzheimer's.

  • You won't see the word Diacetyl on the label, but if you seeartificial butter flavor

  • ornatural flavorson the label, assume the product contains this neurotoxin.

  • Number 8 - Processed Foods

  • The food additives, preservatives, and food dyes contained in processed foods have a negative

  • impact on cognitive functions and behavior in children.

  • Artificial food additives consist of about 3000 different chemicals that are added to

  • processed foods.

  • And among the popular additives, MSG - which is used to emphasize the flavor of the foods,

  • can wreak havoc on your brain health, attacking the brain stem.

  • Naturally, consumption of these foods isn't beneficial for your health and things get

  • even worse when you eat this type of food on a daily basis.

  • Number 9 - Soy

  • This may come as a surprise to many, but this so called healthy bean can be harmful if consumed

  • in large quantities.

  • Studies have found evidence that a high consumption of soy has a negative effect on the brain,

  • especially for those over 68.

  • Although it is not entirely clear what effect soy products have on the aging brain, soy

  • seems to heighten the risk of dementia and lower memory function.

  • Number 10 - Artificial Sweeteners

  • When people try to lose weight, they have a tendency to think that they'll become

  • slim overnight by simply replacing sugar with artificial sweeteners.

  • While it is true that artificial sweeteners do contain less calories, they can actually

  • do more harm than good!

  • If used for an extended period of time, artificial sweeteners can cause brain damage and interfere

  • with your cognitive capacity, especially if you use it in high amounts.

  • The bottom line is, these really are the worst foods to eat, and most of them should come

  • as no surprise.

  • So, try to avoid or at least limit your consumption of these foods to preserve your brain health

  • as you age.
