  56. 56. Conclusion<br /><ul><li>A high saturated fat diet causes massive inflammation in Angptl4-/- mice originating in mesenteric lymph nodes.
  57. 57. MLN-resident macrophages are protected from the pro-inflammatory effect of saturated fatty acids via expression of Angptl4, which is strongly induced by chyle and fatty acids and which via inhibition of LPL prevents lipolysis of chylomicron-TG.
  58. 58. In the absence of this protective mechanism, feeding a diet rich in saturated fat rapidly leads to enhanced lipid uptake into MLN-resident macrophages, triggering foam cell formation and a massive inflammatory response.</li></ul>Lichtenstein et al. Cell Metab. 2010<br />

  61. 61. Summary<br />You are what you eat => during life all events will leave their (epigenetic) traces on our genome, some are irreversible => ageing<br />Disease phenotypes such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes are largely related to our “gluttony / sloth” lifestyles and modern convenient (“fast”) foods => unhealthy ageing.<br />NASH is the liver phenotype of the metabolic syndrome and appears early in the progression towards diabetes or CVD. <br />There is a tight relationship between adipose tissue dysfunction and NASH pathogenesis.<br />Chronic overconsumption of saturated fat or lipogenic precursors (starch, sugars) induces non-resolving low-grade pro-inflammatory state largely caused by the innate immune system.<br />=> choose the right lifestyle & food pattern (diverse & anti-inflammatory), eat less & exercise more (at least for 30 minutes/day).<br />
