# There’s a Mishna (Pirkei Avot 3:8) which says that one who forgets Torah that he learning is responsible for his soul and violates the prohibition of “רק השמר לך ושמר נפשך מאד פן תשכח את הדברים אשר ראו עיניך” (Beware and take caution for your soul very much lest you forget the things which you saw at Har Sinai). However, the Mishna continues that if one learned more than one was able to remember and there’s no prohibition in forgetting. Some understand the prohibition as including someone who was inadvertent and exempts only the true extenuating circumstances. <Ref>Rabbenu Yonah on Pirkei Avot 3:8 </ref>However, others understand that the prohibition only applies to someone who negligent and actively forgot Torah. <ref>Rashbetz in Magan Avot</ref>
 
# Regarding eating foods and doing things that Chazal identified would make a person forget their learning, there’s some room to be lenient and especially regarding eating olives regularly. <Ref>Sh”t Yabea Omer Y”D 2:8(4), See also S"A HaRav Hilchot Talmud Torah 3:1 in the footnote</ref>
