Reduced Cerebrovascular Reactivity and Increased Resting Cerebral Perfusion in Rates Exposed to a Cafeteria Diet
Understand the effects of a diet high in fat, sugar, and sodium (cafeteria diet) on cerebrovascular function of Sprague Dawley rats.
These results demonstrate that short-term consumption of an ultra-processed diet reduces cerebrovascular reactivity. This effect persists after dietary normalization despite recovery of peripheral symptomatology.
