High-fat Meals May Set off Inflammation
This is a very interesting article about high-fat meals causing inflammation in people with type 2 diabetes. What is even more interesting is it sounds like this was only done for one meal and the measurements were taken before and after. The irony is that this is natural when people have not been eating high fat as a routine, and have a high fat one time after an overnight fast, they will display elevated endotoxins in their blood after their first high fat meal.
This is why they do idiotic studies like this to people so researchers can follow their agendas and prove their points. What the researchers are even afraid to disclose is the level of fat in their high-fat meal. This would also make a large difference in the level of endotoxins in the blood. Was it a 50 percent fat meal or a 70 percent fat meal or even higher? Also unstated is the type of fat, and this should be considered a fatal error in the study. Another error is no statement of high glycemic index carbohydrates and the level in the meal. This can also lead to inflammation.
About the only true statement in the article that can be relied on is, “Although the research doesn't show cause and effect ….” This is true because anyone that is considering increasing their fat levels in their daily diets have, or should have learned to increase the levels of fat over time and not all at once. This is what I was taught and by starting out from my low fat meals of approximately 5 to 10 percent, I took approximately six months to bring my fat levels up to 50 to 60 percent.
Some say I took too long and others have agreed with me. That is why I find this study to be a farce and not worthy of the Society for Endocrinology. This is Britain’s national organisation (British spelling) promoting endocrinology and hormone awareness. Since they asked for mention, they are getting it.
