Western diet impairs odor-related learning and olfactory memory in mice — ScienceDaily

Problems with the sense of smell appear to be an early indicator of cognitive decline in people with type 2 diabetes. However, it’s unknown whether factors such as diet and obesity play a role in who develops these symptoms. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Chemical Neuroscience found that mice fed a moderate-fat, high-sugar chow (simulating a Western diet) showed a faster decline in their ability to learn and remember new odors.

Some people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) show signs of olfactory dysfunction, including problems with detecting, discriminating or recalling odors, or even a complete loss of smell. These symptoms are strongly associated with cognitive impairment, and evidence suggests they could be an early indicator of the condition in people with T2D. Obesity, which is the main risk factor for T2D, has also been associated with olfactory dysfunction, but the impact of obesity on the sense of smell specifically in

It’s Been 35 Years Since Nintendo Changed Western Gaming Forever

On this day, 35 years ago, Nintendo made the first of many indelible marks on the Western home gaming industry. On October 18, 1985, the company gave North America the Nintendo Entertainment System, signaling the beginning of a legacy that spawned seven home consoles, six handhelds, and countless beloved franchises.
