Brain Control

Scientists at the Toronto General Hospital Research Institute and at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York have found that the brain controls liver fat production, revealing new ways to lower fat levels in those who are overweight, pre-diabetic and diabetic, and who are predisposed to developing cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, strokes and circulation problems). Scientists discovered that activating a biochemical pathway in the brain lowers liver fat production, which in turn lowers blood fats. These findings pave the way for new treatment strategies that could lower blood fats, thereby reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, which accounts for the death of more women in Asia than any other disease.
