Why stress can make you overweight: Hormones
turn normal cells into dangerous fat The headline is prompted by research into
the newly discovered role of the Adamts1 hormone in the formation of fat cells. Findings from the animal and laboratory study
suggest the Adamts1 hormone can stimulate the development of fat cells. And in turn, Adamts1 is associated with biological
pathways, which seem to be activated by stress and a high calorie diet. This is exciting and useful research which
may pave the way for future study into a safe and effective anti-obesity drug targeting
this pathway. However, this experiment alone may not lead
to this goal. Additionally, it isn’t possible to exclude
the involvement of other hormones in this process. That being said, this study raises awareness
about the negative impact of stress on the body, and how it may lead to weight gain;
both directly and indirectly, by promoting unhealthy behaviours such as comfort eating
and drinking too much alcohol. thanks for watching. please subscribe my channel.
