CU study finds high-fat diet linked to anxiety

Jun 29, 2024, 10:00 AM | Updated: Jul 1, 2024, 11:31 am

A University of Colorado Boulder study suggests that anxiety and other mental health disorders may be linked to the food we eat.

The study, led by Professor Christopher Lowry, found that a high-fat diet in male rats led to an emergence of a molecular signature of anxiety. The research indicates a connection between diet and neural systems in the brain that control anxiety, including the serotonin system.

The study highlights the need for further research on the relationship between food and mental health, with potential implications for understanding and improving mental health conditions.
