High Fat Diet Raises Breast Cancer and Mental Illness Risk in Offspring


High Fat Diet Raises Breast Cancer and Mental Illness Risk in Offspring
Care2.com

In a study published in the online medical journal BioMed Central, researchers found that both parents’ diets prior to conception, and a woman’s pregnancy diet, can affect their children’s risk for breast cancer later in life. In this study researchers assessed the effects of a high fat diet, largely composed of omega 6 fatty acids found in corn oil, which is representative of an average person’s high omega 6 fatty acid intake in North America. The researchers found that the parental high fat diet caused genetic damage that predisposed the offspring to breast cancer. While breast cancer primarily affects women, it can also affect men.But breast cancer is not the only illness linked to a high fat diet. In a new study published in the medical journal Frontiers in Endocrinology, researchers found that a mother’s high fat diet during pregnancy can not only affect her children’s risk of obesity, but also brain development and mental health issues like anxiety.
