“We have shown there is excess fat in the pancreas of people with type 2 diabetes, which is not present in people without diabetes.”, Professor Taylor was quoted. “If this special pool of fat is removed, then the pancreas can produce insulin normally and control sugar levels in the body.”
New research has suggested that a high-fat diet could contribute to symptoms of anxiety and depression due to the unhealthy levels of blood sugar and excess body weight.
Research conducted the study on mice. The mice that were fed a diet that was high in fat underwent changes in the brain.

These symptoms were also able to cancel out the effects of anti-depressants due to the diet that the mice were consuming.
