A good reason to avoid fatty foods

Fats are absorbed directly into the blood stream after eating. Shortly after a high-fat meal, the blood will appear milky as a result of “lumps” of fat floating around in it.

One response to “A good reason to avoid fatty foods

  1. “Gee, my blood is looking fat today.” I dunno, I don’t hear this much, I mean who looks at their blood after a meal anyhow? I think this is a good reason to avoid reading scientific papers. 😉 Like Moe after a comet almost destroys Springfield: “Let’s burn down the Observatory so this can never happen agan!”
