As it turns out, the fat - it's not always a bad thing. Perhaps some of this news will please, as a new scientific study shows that fat can play an important role in the fight against infectious diseases.

A team of scientists from the University of California at San Diego found that the fat cells of mice in a collision with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria begin to produce a substance called cathelicidin.
Cathelicidin, being in turn osvoyu, antimicrobial peptide (actually antibiotic) begins to interact with the membrane bacteria, destroying it. In addition, this substance is able to fight off viruses, although scientists have yet to end and have not figured out exactly how.

The most interesting thing here is that grown in the laboratory of genetically modified mouse, which has a much lower fat reserves showed under control tests are much worse result of confrontation of the same infection. Scientists report that in human fat cells also contained cathelicidin and therefore in our body it works the same way - helps the body defend itself against infectious attacks.

However, scientists have warned that the presence of large reserves of fat does not necessarily mean better protection. Jay Kollz University of Pittsburgh in an interview with the portal New Scientist reported that obesity causes far more problems than it can solve.
