One High Fat Meal: 
Is It Dangerous?

A high fat meal for young adults

Should healthy young adults be concerned about the risks of eating fatty foods?

Research shows a high fat meal can increase cardiovascular risks even two hours later.

Thirty healthy young adults with normal blood pressure ate either a fast food breakfast from McDonald's with 42 grams of fat; or a low fat breakfast of cereal with non-fat milk or cereal bars and non-fat yogurt for a total of 1 gram of fat.

Two hours later, they received both physical and mental stress tests.

The entire experiment was repeated on two separate occasions.

People who had eaten the fatty meal had consistent hyper-reactivity of the cardiovascular system, as seen in higher systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as increased peripheral vascular resistance.

Researchers state that this hyper-reaction may increase the risk of new disease or aggravate existing diseases. (Jakulj F, A high-fat meal increased cardiovascular reactivity to psychological stress in healthy young adults, Journal of Nutrition, April 2007).

Seniors suffer with a high fat meal

Another study tested adults over the age of 50 years who also had type 2 diabetes.

During the study, they were tested with three different meals: a high fat meal of danish pastry, cheese, and yogurt with whipped cream; or the same meal with added antioxidants (1000 mg. Vitamin C plus 800 I.U. Vitamin E); or a meal of water only.

After eating, they were tested for word and paragraph memory recall.

Every time they ate the fatty meal, there was consistent significant memory loss.

However, people who ate the meal with antioxidants performed as well as the people who drank water only (Chui MH, Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care, June 2008).

This study is preliminary and more research is needed to learn if stronger antioxidants like EGCG would provide stronger memory protection.

A chronic high-fat diet is associated with a wide variety of health problems, including high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, cancers, belly fat and obesity, and other serious health risks.
