When the slime doesn’t kill you, it can actually save you
When it comes to health, the average person has an average body fat percentage of about 23 percent, according to a report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
But people with a higher body fat rate are more likely to die from cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and cancers.
The CDC study, which analyzed data from nearly 3,000 U.s. adults, found that those with a high body fat ratio are four times more likely than the general population to die of a cardiovascular disease or stroke.
That means that a person with a low body fat can die from heart attack, stroke or diabetes even if he or she is a healthy weight.
And it can happen because fat tissue that was once used to build muscle is damaged by exposure to toxins, such as toxins from cooking, cooking oil, alcohol, smoking and food processing.
That can lead to inflammation of the fat tissue, leading to an increase in the levels of harmful chemicals called free radicals, which damage cells, leading them to produce more of the harmful compounds that cause illness.
In the study, published Thursday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers looked at data from more than 1.3 million adults ages 20 to 85 who were followed for at least 10 years.
The participants were randomly assigned to either one of three groups.
One group received a dietary supplement that contains the same amount of fat as the average American.
The other two groups received a supplement containing only 10 percent of the typical American fat.
The researchers looked for differences in how people responded to the supplement and found that among those who took the supplement, those who had a high fat percentage were significantly more likely at one point or another to die than those who did not.
The high fat-to-protein ratio was linked to an increased risk of death from cardiovascular diseases and type 2 disease, the researchers found.
But the authors said there was not enough evidence to say whether the high fat consumption was associated with other health problems.
“There is evidence that high levels of fat intake are associated with certain diseases and conditions, but this is only one piece of evidence,” said study co-author David D. Shatz, a professor of preventive medicine at the University of Minnesota.
“We know there are other factors that may increase the risk of disease, including obesity, stress and diet.”
The researchers did not find any link between the fat intake and type II diabetes, which is linked to heart disease and strokes.
But they did find that those in the low fat-fat-protein group had a significantly higher risk of type 2.
That could be because of increased inflammation in fat tissue from the toxins.
“It’s a very interesting finding, because we know that the body is not able to process fats and carbohydrates as efficiently as it should,” Shatz said.
“So it can have a profound effect on the way the body metabolizes fats, and that is, for example, causing inflammation.”
The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, the Office of Dietary Supplements and Nutrition at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
It was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
