Fatty Diet Upsets Metabolism and Causes Anxiety, Depression

October 29, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A diet of fatty foods can adversely affect more than the body, according to new French research in mice. Immoderate fat consumption can increase body weight and boost blood sugar leading to anxiety, depression and measurable brain changes. The study also showed that a fatty diet can thwart the beneficial effects of an antidepressant. The researchers noted that the metabolic impairments were reversed when the mice were taken off a high-fat diet, and their anxious symptoms decreased.
