Are there foods you should avoid before a car crash?

The statistics show that around 1.7 million people in the United States suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every single year. These wind up taking about 50,000 lives annually, but even those who live through the incidents -- car crashes are a serious contributor -- may have impaired cognitive abilities for the rest of their lives. In some cases, these injuries do not ever fully heal, even with the best possible care.

Experts do note that there are a ton of factors that play into this, such as the age at which a person is injured, the severity of that injury and much more. One thing it's important not to overlook, though, is simple nutrition.

According to one industry expert, you're best off to avoid a high-sugar, high-fat diet. This type of diet can slow down the brain's recovery, and he claims it can increase how much of that recovery remains incomplete. This can mean that your disabilities are more severe in the wake of the crash. This happens because having too much sugar and fat increases the odds that significant portions of the brain will quickly degenerate after the incident, and they won't then be able to regrow as the brain heals.

Now, you may be wondering how you can possibly plan to avoid these foods before an accident, which is impossible to predict. The answer, of course, is that you cannot. This simply shows the impact of a healthy diet on healing, and that may be something that requires constant focus.

If you are facing brain injuries that won't ever heal, leaving you with mental and physical issues you'll have to deal with for life, it's important to know if you have a legal right to compensation for medical bills, necessary medical equipment, loss of income and more.
