Hold the Tofu

10:00 AM -- Here's your demented "science" of the day, courtesy of BBC News:

Tofu 'may raise risk of dementia'

  • Eating high levels of some soy products - including tofu - may raise the risk of memory loss, research suggests.

    The study focused on 719 elderly Indonesians living in urban and rural regions of Java.

    The researchers found high tofu consumption - at least once a day - was associated with worse memory, particularly among the over-68s...

Ahem! I have another theory...

  • A third theory is that damage is caused not by the tofu, but by formaldehyde, which is sometimes used in Indonesia as a preservative.

Really. You think it might be the formaldehyde?Note to researchers: Lay off the tofu. And the formaldehyde.
