By now you probably remember this article in the Wall Street Journal in which one of the authors, the late John Ioannidis, speculated that people could benefit from a new diet that involves eating more pizza and not much else.
A diet of pizza and pasta?
Not exactly a healthy way to go.
But Ioannis’ theory has been confirmed in a recent study that compared the brains of people who ate more pizza, less pasta and fewer pizza and rice in the days after they consumed it.
Ioannides team followed more than 1,200 people over a period of 10 years, and found that those who consumed the most pizza and other processed foods had significantly higher levels of inflammatory markers.
This suggests that this type of diet might have the potential to help people cope with stress, or at least help them manage it better.
The authors say the results could help doctors understand the relationship between stress and inflammation.
In their report, the researchers conclude that this new diet is safe for most people and is likely to help with anxiety, depression and chronic pain, as well as provide some support for the treatment of chronic pain and other disorders.
The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, used MRI scans to look at brain regions involved in the regulation of emotions.
This is important because brain scans can be used to measure changes in the brain as a whole.
It also gives researchers a way to determine how much brain tissue the people in the study had.
The researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to look for changes in brain activity in the regions associated with emotion regulation, which is a key aspect of depression and other mental illnesses.
This means that the findings can be compared to scans that look at how people are feeling or experiencing things in real time.
The results showed that the people who had the most unhealthy pizza and noodles also had higher levels in areas associated with emotional processing, while the people with the least unhealthy pizza had lower levels.
This finding suggests that the diet was associated with higher levels and that the eating of unhealthy pizza might be helping people cope more with their stress, depression, and other chronic health conditions.
The finding has some potential implications for people who struggle with anxiety and other conditions that can be linked to stress, but is more important for people with inflammatory conditions.
People who are in better shape should be able to eat more healthy foods, and this study could help to inform the types of diets that are best for people.
In addition to being a healthy option, it may also have benefits for people suffering from other health conditions that are associated with inflammation.
For instance, it could be that eating pizza and spaghetti can help to lower inflammation, which can have adverse effects on the immune system.
The scientists behind this study say the findings could also help doctors to develop a better way of treating inflammatory conditions in the future.
If Ioannias work proves to be true, it’s important to note that many people do not eat pizza and just pasta as much as they used to.
It is possible that the results will be replicated, or even expanded, in other studies to look more closely at the relationship of these diets to inflammation.
The latest study also looks at the brains in older people, and it showed that while the pizza and processed foods seemed to be associated with increased levels of inflammation, it was not clear whether eating more vegetables, fruits, or whole grains was linked to less inflammation.
It could be possible that more research is needed to confirm the results.
If it is true that eating more processed food is associated with less inflammation, the findings may provide a way of easing people who are suffering from chronic health issues that are linked to inflammation and may benefit them as well.
What about the other findings?
In the study, the authors also looked at brain imaging of the participants as they ate pizza and saw how the people’s brain regions changed.
This showed that there was a correlation between how much pizza was consumed and changes in areas involved in emotion regulation.
In fact, this association was stronger when the participants ate pizza in a way that was not in keeping with their healthy eating habits.
So, while these findings are intriguing, they could be misinterpreted.
For example, the study authors did not look at the people themselves, but the researchers said this was the main reason why they were unable to say for sure that the associations they saw were due to the people eating the pizza.
The paper also looked into the brain changes in people who were taking medication, and there was no relationship between pizza and these changes.
What about the future?
The results from this study may help doctors better understand how the brain works to regulate emotion, but they also have important implications for the future of eating disorders, too.
In particular, the results show that people who eat the most processed foods have higher levels (and possibly even greater numbers) of inflammation markers, which could help explain the links between the inflammation
