Western diet impacts on hypersensitivity and susceptibility to chronic pain.

Unhealthy-food.x78445A new study, published in the Journal of Pain, has revealed that a western diet and poor dietary habits causes prolonged health issues for chronic pain sufferers.

“It is currently unknown whether increased pain is due to greater weight or poor diet quality, or both,” said Robert Sorge, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology in UAB’s College of Arts and Sciences. “This study shows us the direct link between poor diet quality and increased pain.”
