Brain plays key role in appetite by burning fat for energy and regulating free radicals
“Researchers at Yale School of Medicine have found the brain’s appetite center uses fat for fuel by involving oxygen free radicalsâ€”molecules associated with aging and neurodegeneration. . .”
“In contrast to the accepted view, the brain does use fat as fuel,” said Horvath. “Our study shows that the minute-by-minute control of appetite is regulated by free radicals, implying that if you interfere with free radicals, you may affect eating and satiety. . .”
The results also imply, added Horvath, “that each time a feeling of fullness or satiety is reached during a meal, you may be chipping away some time from your maximum lifespan as the most free radicals are produced when satiety-promoting brain cells are active.”
