CAMBRIDGE, United KingdomHigh-fat diets may make humans lazy and stupid, according to a new study published in the FASEB Journal. Researchers from the University of Cambridge discovered that rats that ate a high-fat diet for 10 days suffered short-term memory loss and difficulty in exercise.
"Western diets are typically high in fat and are associated with long-term complications, such as obesity, diabetes and heart failure, yet the short-term consequences of such diets have been given relatively little attention," said Andrew Murray, co-author of the study and currently at the University of Cambridge. We hope that the findings of our study will help people to think seriously about reducing the fat content of their daily food intake to the immediate benefit of their general health, well-being and alertness."
