Unsaturated Fat Breakdown Leads to Complications of Acute Pancreatitis in Obese Patients

But, hey, who needs a good pancreas anyway?
The toxic byproducts produced by the breakdown of unsaturated fats lead to a higher likelihood of severe inflammation, cell death and multi-system organ failure among acute pancreatitis patients who are obese, say researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Their findings, published online November 2 in Science Translational Medicine, provide new insight into how fat can induce complications after sudden inflammatory, non-infectious illnesses.
Kudos, fatsos.
