Scientists have found that high consumption of high fat foods (such as fast food) is linked to an increased risk of developing insulin resistance. Insulin resistance results in excess blood sugar which can in turn increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. People who ate at least 2 fast food meals a week had a 100% risk of insulin resistance compared to those who had one or less fast food meals a week.
