Submission + - Diet of fast food and candy may cause Alzheimer's (reuters.com)

lurking_giant writes: According to Reuters, Swedish research shows that a diet rich in fat, sugar and cholesterol could increase the risk of Alzheimer's. At least in rats. "These mice showed chemical changes in their brains, indicating an abnormal build-up of the protein tau as well as signs that cholesterol in food reduced levels of another protein called Arc involved in memory storage". So maybe that pile of fast food bags, candy wrappers and soda cans should be a warning. Get out of the basement and eat healthy and exercise.
