Recent research has revealed that late dinners and snacks can lead to weight gain, acid reflux, and now, some concerning brain-related problems, including impaired memory and learning capabilities.

In this recent study, scientists studied mice who were fed during the day when they tend to be most active, and at night when they should be sleeping.

Both groups of mice were given a series of tests that examined their ability to remember unique objects and rooms associated with a mild electric shock.

In both cases, mice who ate at night were significantly less able to recall the objects and experiences.

Author of the study, Dr. Dawn Loh explained that by consuming food at the “wrong” time of day, we’re misaligning the clocks in our bodies and brains.

If you just can’t resist a midnight snack, at least attempt to keep it healthy.
