    I read the study, it does not confirm anything nor does it use the word, it supports previous studies. The tests on rats are done because they cannot be done on humans and there are however a lot of areas where rats and humans do not react the same way. I have followed these studies for a long time since I am obese. But to date they researchers have not concluded anything, this area of research is considered virgin territory. But you are absolutely right diet affects weight and general health and low fat diets are considered healthier. High fat high cholesterol diets lead to obese and the risk for many weight related illnesses.

    Yes, perhaps "supports prior research" or similar wording would have been more technically accurate. The world of science is, after all, a lot more stringent in its word-use than the rest of us!

    I saw this when it came out-- I've been reading about similar theories for a while. Fats and sugar seems to activate the pleasure centers of the brain, which can be a big problem for some. BTW I just linked to your piece in my latest article on my Dallas Healthy Trends page for Examiner. :)
