    5 Foods That Make You Dumber

    ... In studies, those with the most trans fat in their blood have significantly worse cognitive performance—and physically smaller brains!—than those with less trans fats. And a new study says trans fats may impair memory, too ...


    Dumbest Food #1

    Microwave Popcorn
    Many major brands line their bags with perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), the same stuff found in teflon pots and pans; some studies have linked it to infertility, weight gain, and impaired learning. Speaking of learning trouble, butter-flavored popcorns are almost always laced with diacetyl (DA), a chemical that has been found to break down the layer of cells that protects our brain.

    Genetically modified foods (or GM foods) are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. These techniques allow for the introduction of new traits as well as greater control over traits than previous methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding.[1]
