Animal Model Shows High-Fat Diets Cause Inflammation and Cancer, But Type of Fat Matters

A high-fat-diet-induced immune reaction causes inflammation leading to intestinal cancer in a mouse model – even among animals that are not obese — according to a study from the Pacific Northwest Research Institute’s (PNRI) Nadeau Lab, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Case Western Reserve University, and others.

Epidemiological and clinical evidence have linked obesity with inflammation and increased risk
