Ready-made products make you sick in the long run

You are what you eat – there is a lot of truth in this saying. Because US researchers have now found that the ingredients of many finished products age our brain and thus cause Alzheimer’s. But there are also foods that are stopping this development.

Our reporter did a big self-experiment a few years ago. She wanted to find out whether the taste changes noticeably if you only eat finished products – you can see the result in the video.

Diet affects Alzheimer’s

The fact that ready-made pizzas, French fries, chips, sausage and other highly processed products are unhealthy should no longer surprise anyone. But how specific the damage – especially in our brain – is after a few weeks is a new finding.

In an experiment, researchers at Ohio State University found that measurable damage was already present after four weeks. The focus was on products that were packaged for a long shelf life. These products also often lead to obesity and type 2 diabetes.

“The fact that we were able to detect these effects so quickly is alarming,” said Ruth Barrientos, a scientist at Ohio State University. “These results show that the consumption of finished products has a direct negative impact on our memory. For the aging population, this means that memory loss is more likely to lead to Alzheimer’s disease.”

Study shows which foods make us sick

The study itself was carried out on rats. The US scientists imitated a human diet based on finished products. Because many processed products as well as meat and sausage products trigger inflammation in the body, which can also lead to protracted diseases of the cardiovascular system.

On the other hand, the right diet can also reduce the risk of disease – especially the risk of developing many types of cancer. We show here which foods are particularly helpful.

These products bring relief

But even if the consequences of such a diet can quickly become very serious for our bodies – there is also good news. Because they are not irreversible. The scientists found that special foods can even heal our bodies again.

According to the researchers, foods with the omega-3 fatty acid DHA should be able to stop the negative processes. It can be found in fish and other seafood. Apart from that, the scientists recommend a balanced whole-food diet, i.e. lots of fresh foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grain products. Because they also help against weight gain, which the study also showed with the finished products. (lra)
