Brain Nutrition: Avoid Trans Fats, Copper
>

It's a good idea to avoid trans fats and too much copper, along with certain saturated fats, in order to maintain a healthy brain.

Trans Fats were developed in World War II to preserve MREs and deliver a caloric punch. However, since that time they have proliferated in commercial foods.

Evidence seems to show that the 'lack of scarcity' in the diet may be one of the factors that triggers people with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's (APOEe4 positive/positive) to be at much higher risk. Trans Fats seem to accelerate the lack of scarcity.

Also, a cast iron pot will deliver more benefits than a copper one.
