How a Western diet leads to overeating and obesity: Peripheral endocannabinoid signaling identified as a pharmaceutical target for overeating associated with diet-induced obesity

Shared by:

 
More than two in three adults in the United States are considered overweight or obese, with substantial biomedical and clinical evidence suggesting that chronic overconsumption of a 'western diet' -- foods consisting high levels of sugars and fats -- is a major cause of this epidemic. New research now shows that chronic consumption of a western diet leads to overeating and obesity due to elevations in 'peripheral endocannabinoid signaling.'
