In the short run, a high-fat diet may help minimize heart attack damage

16 febrero 2015

A high-fat diet, eaten one day to two weeks days before a heart attack, reduced heart attack damage in mice by about 50 percent, according to a new study. The finding could provide insight into the «obesity paradox,» by which obesity appears to provide protection to heart attack patients. Researchers emphasize the study is not a license to eat a lot of cheeseburgers and ice cream.
