Study Suggests Weight-Loss Surgery May Release Toxic Compounds From Fat Into the Bloodstream

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Toxic man-made chemicals—such as polychlorinated biphenyls and organochlorine pesticides—that are absorbed into the body and stored in fat may be released into the bloodstream during the rapid fat loss that follows bariatric surgery, according to a study from researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The finding points to the need for further research to understand the health effects of this potential toxicant exposure.
