We all know that high-fat, high-calorie foods can harm our body and spoil our figure. But recently it turned out that there is another reason according to which you should not abuse fatty foods. Scientists have proven that due to the fact that fatty junk food has a very bad effect on the microflora of the human gastrointestinal tract, and as a result, the body begins to feel pressure on the psyche.
Scientists have conducted experiments on mice. They were divided into two experimental groups. The first group was given normal healthy food, and the second group was given food that was high in fat.
After that, the scientists took cells from the gastrointestinal tract of the representatives of the second group and transplanted them into the mice of the first group, which were given healthy food with a normal fat content, and began to observe their behavior.
Over time, the rodents from the first experimental group began to behave rather aggressively, and to show anxiety in behavior, and their memory began to deteriorate.
Thanks to these experiments, scientists were able to prove that the consumption of fatty foods can cause, in addition to obesity, and mental disorders.
