Put down the doughnut: Trans fat may hurt your memory (Health)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 11.27.2014

The Food and Drug Administration recently took a step toward eliminating most trans fat from our food. The government agency said it has made a preliminary determination that a major source of trans fats -- partially hydrogenated oils -- is no longer "generally recognized as safe." If the FDA's decision is finalized, partially hydrogenated oils will become food additives that could no longer be used without approval.

"From a health standpoint, trans fat consumption has been linked to higher body weight, more aggression and heart disease"

Put down the doughnut: Trans fat may hurt your memory

(CNN) -- If you can't remember where your car keys are, you may want to eat fewer muffins.

It turns out the more trans fat you eat, the less you may remember, according to a study presented at the American Heart Association's scientific conference last week. Maybe that explains why some people don't know how they pack on the pounds over the holidays.

To look at what role trans fat played in memory, scientists in this new study looked at the diets of about 1,000 working-age healthy men.

The participants were shown 104 cards with words on them. With each new card the adult was shown, he was asked whether the word was new or had been repeated.

Examining their blood, scientists discovered that a disproportionate number of people who had a lot of trans fat in their system remembered fewer words than those with less in their system.

For each extra gram of trans fat eaten a day, the person in the study remembered .76 fewer words. The men who ate the most trans fat in the study remembered a total of about 10% fewer words compared with the adults who ate the least amount of trans fat, even when filtered for demographic qualities that typically affect one's memory like age, depression and education.
