How fat helps the body fight infections

A team of scientists studied how the body fights bacterial infections such as Salmonella. This infection causes a person to vomit, diarrhea, abdominal pain, sepsis, and fever.

It turned out that blood stem cells respond to disease by obtaining high-energy fatty acids from fat stores. The high-energy fatty acids are then taken up by the blood stem cells and allow them to produce substances that fight salmonella. The research results are published in the journal Nature Communications.
