FAST FOOD LINKED WITH HIGHER RISK OF INSULIN RESISTANCE

Eating fast food more than twice a week may double the risk of developing Insulin Resistance, leading to serious conditions like Cardiovascular Disease, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Type 2 Diabetes.

Drinking Tea for Natural HealingResearchers at Boston Children's Hospital followed the eating habits of more than 3,000 people over a 15-year-period, focusing on African-Americans and whites of both sexes between the ages of 18 and 30. In the study*, reported in the British medical journal The Lancet, participants were asked about their lifestyles, including diet, exercise, smoking and leisure habits at the start of the research, then again after 2, 5, 7, 10 and 15 years.

Those who visited fast-food restaurants more than twice a week gained on average an extra 9.9 lbs over the research period and had a two-fold greater increase in Insulin Resistance, compared with those who said they went less than once a week.

Insulin Resistance causes an imbalance of glucose and insulin in the blood stream, which can lead to weight gain and obesity. Excess weight may, in turn, increase the risk of developing the cluster of Cardiovascular Diseases known as Metabolic Syndrome as well as PCOS, a leading cause of infertility in women, and Pre-Diabetes leading to Type 2 Diabetes. A wealth of medical evidence suggests that the symptoms of Insulin Resistance can reversed by losing weight through adopting a healthier lifestyle of regular exercise and a balanced nutritional diet.

Dr. David Ludwig, lead researcher of the Boston study, said: "Fast food habits have strong ... and independent associations with weight gain and Insulin Resistance in young black and white adults. In view of the high and increasing rates of fast-food consumption, further research into the effects of the dietary pattern on public health should be given priority."

In a commentary on the study in The Lancet, Danish nutrition expert Professor Arne Astrup said the study was limited because it relied on people reporting their nutritional habits accurately.

But he added: "Appropriate action would be ... to sell burgers of lean meat, whole-grain breads or buns, fat-reduced mayonnaise, more vegetables, lower-fat fried potatoes and reduced-sugar soft drinks."
