Fatty Food Snacks Might Cause Inflammation from Leaky Gut

In a European study of diabetics, it was found that fatty food snacks such as potato chips causes leaky gut. Thus increased amounts of bacterial endotoxins that are normally contained in the gut are absorbed. This can lead to inflammation and possible infection, at least in diabetics. It is food for thought in the general population as well. Spreading your food consumption out by including snacks can be healthy but not if the food is high in fat. See the proceedings of the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes(click here).
