Foods a Neurosurgeon Never Eats

Neurosurgeons steer clear of sugary sodas because of their high sugar content. 

1. Sugary Soda

Excessive sugar consumption can lead to insulin resistance, obesity, and an increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases. 

Processed meats like hot dogs and bacon contain additives and preservatives that can contribute to inflammation. 

2. Processed Meats

Chronic inflammation is a significant risk factor for neurological disorders. Instead, choose lean, unprocessed meats or plant-based protein sources.

Some studies suggest that artificial sweeteners like aspartame might have adverse effects on the brain.

3. Artificial Sweeteners

 Neurosurgeons prefer natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup in moderation.

Trans fats found in fried and processed foods can increase inflammation and reduce cognitive function. Opt for healthier fats like olive oil, avocados, and nuts.

4. Trans Fats

The chemicals used in microwave popcorn bags may contain harmful compounds like perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) that can affect brain health. 

5. Microwave Popcorn

Consider air-popped popcorn as a safer alternative.
