A recent study has found that people have very individualised responses called inflammatory response when it comes to digesting high-fat food. Inflammation is a group of responses by the body telling white blood cells how much to react. It is a normal reaction to eating a meal, especially ones with high amounts of fat. The study was published in the 'Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry'. Each volunteer in the study had both a unique amount of inflammatory response and a unique amount of time for when the responses peaked, up to 6 hours after eating (8 or more hours is considered fasting by nutritionists). The researchers used a very sensitive test to look at whether any genes in the human genome were turned off or on in order to define a volunteer's reactions. Responses by more than 13,000 genes differed between subjects. The test meal was equivalent to someone having a small hamburger, small fries, and a small ice cream shake with fruit, according to the scientists.Inflammation is associated with a whole host of conditions such as asthma, diabetes, peptic ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, and many others.
