A short term high-fat high-sucrose diet in mice impairs optic nerve recovery after injury and this is not reversed by exercise.

Abstract

The aim of the current work was to test whether increased intake of dietary fat and sucrose in mice modifies the response of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) of the optic nerve to injury, and whether any effects of diet are influenced by physical activity levels. C57BL/6J mice were given a high-fat high-sucrose (HFS) diet for 7 weeks, with or without exposure… (More)
