You wouldn't think that food as being a stress inducer but there are actually foods that can cause stress in the long-term. A new study found that eating foods that are high in saturated fats may lead you to "develop poor stress coping skills" in the long run. Specifically, researchers found that the areas of the brain in charge of responding to fear and stress were so significantly altered by this high-fat diet that it began to show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder. The study focused on mice that were fed a diet high in saturated fats, and after a few years of observing their behavior, the study found that these foods caused the rats to "have a harder time coping with stress as adults." The findings of the research support that the lifestyle decisions made during adolescence — even those as simple as your diet — can make a big difference in our ability to overcome every day challenges.
