Abstract

The objective of this study was to observe the effect of thirty day feeding of fast foods (cheese burger, french fries and noodles) on the lipid profile and blood sugar level of mice. Comparative study shows that triglyceride, VLDL and blood sugar level increased more significantly in mice fed with noodles followed by french fries then cheese burger, while good cholesterol level ( HDL) was found to be lowered more in mice fed with french fries followed by cheese burger then noodles. The cholesterol and bad cholesterol level (LDL) were noted more in mice fed with noodles followed by cheese burger then French fries. The obtained results reveal that the altered lipid profile and blood sugar level may disturb the biochemistry of the animal, as a result risk factor for obesity, type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease may increase.
