Eating fatty foods disrupts the transmission of impulses in the brain. This is indicated by the results of the experiment with laboratory mice. Scientists removed in animals, the mTORC2 complex, a group of proteins responsible for transmitting insulin signals in the brain. After that rodents could not stop to eat food rich in fat and carbohydrates, says Zee News.
In addition, the food itself was delivered to animals as much fun. Scientists compare this state with narcotic dependence, when the brain is poorly reacts to various stimulants.
Fatty foods, experts say, changes the brain, particularly the structure responsible for reward. Once insulin is the transmission of signals, the person begins to eat a lot of fatty and he doesn't see it. As a result of the changes secured, and the desire to consume a lot of food becomes a regular behavior.
