You mean the one that produced all the cultural achievements of the modern world and dominated it for centuries? Amazing how such a terrible standard of nutrition could do that - must say a lot for the resiliency of white people.

Galileo, Newton, Einstein etc weren't living on Crispy Crème, Capt Crunch and Whoppers, slugged down with a Diet Coke.

The western diet of highly processed carbs, refined sugar and fats is a recent development and has mostly produced obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Average life expectancy in US today: 79
Galileo died at 77 years, Newton 84 and Einstein 76. This average to (gasp) 79 years of age. I expected this killer diet of yours to have a noticeable effect. Gotta get into the details, you say? Factor out this, correct for that maybe? Well yeah, that's kinda the point dumbass. But by your simple 'reasoning' I could conclude that this so-called 'western' diet (as if it was limited to the 'west') has no effect on lifespan.

I won't of course. Personally I think it does, I believe it's bigger than a lot of folks want to think about. But not because of anything you have shown here. And I'm still waiting for you to return to the alleged topic of this thread, that this diet makes folks dumb. Fat, sure. Addictive, absolutely. But dumb?

Well since 'we' are going back to the moon you had better see if your onsie pajamas space suit still fits.

OK, so you want to move from western diet and brain function to life expectancy.

So have a deep fried Snickers bar and start another thread.

No, you and your sidekick took it in the health direction but by all means, back to the topic. The article speaks a bit to the effect of diet on the hippocampus but outside of memory functions the literature is a bit sketchy on what role, if any, the hippocampus plays in reasoning ability or IQ, the degradation of which is what is typically meant by the word 'dumb'. Got any cites, or are you just gonna take the Guardian's word for it?

FYI I don't eat snickers bars, deep fried or otherwise. Never have, never will.

Why not? I have a sack of the little ones on my bench. Also had the ice cream bar version after lunch today. Deep fried hmm.

Anyway just checking in and don't see much progression here since the last time a couple of pages back.

Well, there is BBQ and bread. That's two. Oh, add pickles and onions, that makes three; gotta have veggies too! Basic enough. . I like sweet milk too, there's four.

6 Days and 3 pages into this topic and it is obvious you never read the linked Guardian article because it CITES the study with a link.

So, no we don't just have to take the Guardian's word for it.

Wrongo, I went through 'em. No cites of any data with respect to the role of the hippocampus into reasoning ability. Not to be confused with memory functioning (they are different, ya know).

Obviously j doesn't understand the world. There are food diets that give you a fat body and information diets that give you a fat head. Apparently he thinks he has the food diet to his own satisfaction so now it would be great if he would work on his fat head. The diet he feeds his brain is pure cancer and in no way does it exercise the mind.

A fat foolish head is far worse than being obese, at least the obese can see what they have done to themselves. Fat heads think it's all normal to be stupid... that's our j.

Who says the study was about impairment of reasoning?

If you can't remember as well, you can learn as well, making YOU dumber.

Maybe even dumb enough to think that when NASA says We Are Going To The Moon, you think that means everybody that hears the words or everybody at NASA, all 17K plus employees are getting on the rocket ship.

Imagine taking the word of one of the dumbest countries in the world that the western diet makes folks dumb. What an ignorant wretch to use a source like his to declare Americans dumb. The real fathead is the one who brought a worthless piece of crap like that here to the files and tries to defend it. God what a cull.

Its like he gets his reading from shithouse walls.

dumb - slow to learn or understand

2nd time, if your memory is impaired you can not learn as well, making you dumber.

And there is a lot of that around here.

Not sure which 'dumbest country in the world' you are referring to?
Britain (the Guardian), which Bubbatard is proud to tell all that it gave the world flush toilets or Australia where the study was conducted which gave us Crocodile Dundee and Aussie Andy.
