High fat diets damage your brain

Are you sometimes feeling annoyed and irked? Do you feel your memory is affected and you cannot remember many things? Well if answer is yes then the reason is your eating habits. A recent study showed that a high-fat diet can affect brain health and promote changes in your behavior, including increased anxiety, impaired memory, and repetitive behavior.

The findings published in the journal Biological Psychiatry suggest that even those who are not obese should avoid fatty foods to obviate diet-induced psychiatric disorders. The researchers noted high-fat diet produces changes in health and behavior, in part, by changing the mix of bacteria in the gut, also known as the gut microbiome.

“This paper suggests that high-fat diets impair brain health, in part, by disrupting the symbiotic relationship between humans and the microorganisms that occupy our gastrointestinal tracks,” commented John Krystal, editor of Biological Psychiatry.

It was tested whether an obesity-related microbiome alters behavior and cognition even in the absence of obesity. Non-obese adult mice were conventionally housed and maintained on a normal diet, but received a transplant of gut microbiota from donor mice that had been fed either a high-fat diet or control diet.

Talk of Pakistani food or the famous fast food, it has been very much in nowadays and people prefer eating out. The daily eating habits changing as life style is evolving. So if someone wants to live longer and stay perfect, they should avoid excessive high fat diets. It will not only save you from obesity but from anxiety, depression and many other behavioral problems.
