Melbourne: A biomedical professor has found onions, green tea and olive leaf extract can fight obesity and its related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and fatty liver, even when a high-fat and high-carbohydrate diet is indulged in. Prof Lindsay Brown, from the University of Southern Queensland, tested a range of foods on rats that were being fed an unhealthy diet high in sugar and fat. He found certain foods helped prevent the growth of inflammatory cells in the animals` fat pads, located in the abdomen, which take fat from the blood stream and store it, reports the Daily Telegraph.
