More Trans Fat Consumption Linked to Greater Aggression – 13 March 2012


Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, have shown – by each of a range of measures, in men and women of all ages, in Caucasians and minorities – that consumption of dietary trans fatty acids (dTFAs) is associated with irritability and aggression. Read the full news item and FAB Research comment here.

The study of nearly 1,000 men and women provides the first evidence linking dTFAs with adverse behaviours that impacted others, ranging from impatience to overt aggression. The research, led by Beatrice Golomb, MD, PhD, associate professor in the UC San Diego Department of Medicine, has been published online by PLoS ONE.

The research article by Beatrice Golomb is freely available online at PLoS One here:

    I’m not too surprised by this; most fatty foods – especially the fast food garbage they spew to us – have so many hormones that it would have eventually effected someone. Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))
