Here we go again. At the end of the article: ""Most of the studies indicate that a diet of saturated fats like those found in junk food reduces cognitive performance,'' said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a physiological science professor at UCLA who was not involved in the study. "I will be more interested to see what they find when they monitor the composition of the diet.''"
Heh wouldn't be surprised if those studies Fernando talks about were done using just correlation between high saturated fat usage and cognitive performance. Correlation doesn't prove causation. Eating saturated fats at Mcdonald's all the time may very well screw your brain over. Now, from organic fertilized eggs...I don't think so.
After reading OTBs comment, I tried to look up for this neurologist's blog where he says seizures and migraines can be treated with MCT Oil (the main component of CO), but I can't seem to find it now. He said ketogenic diets are very effective in treating seizures, but instead of going into ketosis, one can achieve similar results by taking MCT Oil.
The article does go to say that the meals didn't look that different, so it wasn't like they fed one group big macs and the other one raw veggies. It was something along to lines of what dressing and extra toppings one group received as compared to others...
So possibly more valid that the mice study?
And how come no one is commissioning a study source of fat/carbs/protein for the equivalent ratio consumed?
