According to a new study, low-carb food may protect against some diseases. The investigators claimed that whatever a person eats directly influences the cell function. When a person consumes low-calorie food, it provides a calming effect against diseases.
The study was conducted on mice which showed the performance of various cells following ingestion of low-fat food. After the study, it was concluded that a low-calorie diet may protect the brain. It revealed protection of the mind from neuronal cell death, which may be caused by diseases like epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and cerebral vascular accident (CVA).
The analysis was presented in the FAPESP Week London, which will be taking place on February 11-13. For the analysis, the team of the researchers split each of the mice into two groups.
“We are looking at how modifications to the diet influence metabolism and also how that ends up changing the likelihood of getting diseases associated with aging,” stated co-author Alicia Kowaltowski, Professor in the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil.
The researchers calculated that the average number of calories every group consumed. Among those 2 groups was not any limitation on calorie intake. Whereas the other group was awarded 40 percent fewer calories.
After giving the injection the analysis concluded that the team that had no dietary restriction had seizers. But people who have restricted calorie intake didn’t.
