Fatty food linked to brain damage, new study shows

Eating too much fatty food causes brain damage linked to obesity, according to new research.

US scientists found a sudden change to a high-fat diet triggered inflammation in a key area of rodent brains responsible for regulating body weight.

The inflammation produced distinctive scarring similar to that seen in stroke patients - and that brain scarring was then observed in humans who were overweight.

While the research does not unequivocally prove brain damage caused by fatty food is linked to obesity, it provides strong indications for further research.

"It would be unlikely you could injure that part of the brain and not affect the level of bodyweight, because that's what that area does," said Michael Schwartz, who is the director of the University of Washington's Diabetes and Obesity Centre of Excellence.

"Fast foods are more likely to do this sort of damage."

Most people have a natural equilibrium bodyweight, and although they can lose or gain kilos by adjusting their diet, their body will tend to return to its natural weight once those restrictions are removed.

Thus, obesity is often less a problem of losing weight than of keeping it off.

The brain area that regulates metabolism, the hypothalamus, relies on a hormone called leptin to measure the changes in body weight - and leptin is produced in fat.

"So you have a situation where if you have an inflammatory response in the hypothalamus you need more leptin to do the same job, and the only way to have more leptin is to have more fat," Professor Schwartz said.

The findings are published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation today. http://www.jci.org/articles/view/59660

why do people blame everything on fast food?

a burger in your kitchen is the same as at Wendy's as far as fat content goes (shrugs)

Bottom line.

Hydrogenated oils are bad for you.

It ain't the fat. Just ask the Eskimos.

All of the contents are good, but the mixture is unbalanced. You would be better to get each of the ingredients separately and balance them over 3 doses a day. Aside from the fact that the piracetam and oxyracetam amounts are the reverse of what they should be the water soluble piracetam is redundant with the fat soluble aniracetam.
