Just Say No… To McDonalds!

mcAlzheimer Other than the nasty taste of the food, here is another reason to keep yourself from McDonald’s, Alzheimer’s.

This from Reuters

Mice fed junk food for nine months showed signs of developing the abnormal brain tangles strongly associated with Alzheimer’s disease, a Swedish researcher said on Friday.

The findings, which come from a series of published papers by a researcher at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet, show how a diet rich in fat, sugar and cholesterol could increase the risk of the most common type of dementia.

Not that McDonald’s is by any means the only offender, of the offenders however they happen to serve the worst tasting food.

I blogged this only because I find it a somewhat interesting, but now another thought comes to mind.

Given this study, how long until a husband, a wife, son or daughter brings suit against some fast food establishment as being the cause of Alzheimer’s in their relative?
