For many of us, sweet treats are probably one of the best ways to escape from a bad day. Whether it be ice-cream, a donut, or better still, a slice of cake, that is all it takes to turn a frown upside down.

But did you know that your sweet-tooth might do a lot more than just add a couple of pounds to your waist? Well if you didn’t, then this report from China Press might be of interest to you!

According to research conducted by scientists, higher trans fat content in our blood may lead to a 74% increase in our chances to develop Alzheimer’s disease as compared to the average person! Neuroscientists now say that cardiovascular disease can also be linked to the deterioration of the brain as well as cognitive functions.

The results obtained from this study came from a 10-year research conducted among 1,600 Japanese men and women, examining the trans fat content in their blood as well as factors that include whether they smoked, had diabetes, hypertension, as well as their eating habits. From the study, people who had high trans fat content in their blood stood a 74% higher chance of developing Alzheimer’s.

According to a neurologist from Cornell University in New York, the purpose of this research is to provide a scientific basis to draw correlations between trans fats and the risk of dementia. This also proves that trans fats obtained through an unhealthy diet can be one of the leading causes of dementia in humans.

Some of the most popular foods that use trans fats are typically in dairy and meat products, as well as in sweet foods that use artificial trans fats such as cakes and biscuits. This is due to the added flavour they bring to food, as well as their extended storage life. This research has also found that cakes and desserts made in Japan tend to contain much higher amounts of trans fats.

Yikes! Given that fact, we should really all make an effort to steer clear of foods that contain high amounts of trans fats. Curb that sweet tooth everyone!
