Weight loss: Study reveals chemicals in DUST could be making YOU fat

Researchers at the American Chemical Society found that house dust contains compounds called endocrine-disrupting chemicals, known as EDCs.

These can cause fat cells to pick up triglycerides, another type of fat.

The study took samples from 11 homes in North Carolina, USA.

Shockingly, seven of the 11 households revealed that house dust triggered triglycerides to accumulate.

EDCs are often found in consumer goods from where they can make their way into dust.

The dust is then ingested, absorbed through the skin or inhaled.

This means that removing as much dust as possible could help you slim down.

There are other everyday things that could be making you gain weight without you realising.

A study released earlier this month revealed just the smell of food could be causing weight gain.

The study by the University of California, Berkeley, found the connection when testing mice and their metabolism.

Researchers discovered that there is a connection between what can be smelt and how the body then burns calories.

The mice that could smell the food stored the fat, yet those who couldn’t burned it off.

Céline Riera, one of the researchers on the team, confirmed: “This paper is one of the first studies that really shows if we manipulate olfactory inputs we can actually alter how the brain perceives energy balance, and how the brain regulates energy balance.”

As well as keeping the house clean and not smelling food, there are other ways to keep weight off once it has been lost.

A study carried out at the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, scientists asked 388 adults who lost weight to share how they did it.

The experts claimed, “adopting a different (…) set of behavioural strategies is key for achieving success”.
