Why would they use stupid rat in a study? I would think normally smart rats would be better.

Heh, and on that page, under the article, there's a section called "Related Coverage" which contains an article on the health benefits of BCAAs, within which are cited several human studies. Wonder which I should put more stock in?

The researchers found that the competition between BCAAs and tryptophan in the blood led to lower-than-normal serotonin levels in the brain, which had unwanted consequences.

"This then lowered serotonin levels in the brain, which in turn was a potent signal to increase appetite," says Prof. Simpson, adding, "The serotonin decrease caused by excess BCAA intake led to massive overeating in our mice, which became hugely obese and lived shorter lives."
Ah, well clearly the obesity had nothing to do with the shorter lifespan. Just an unfortunate inevitable side-effect of the BCAAs.

Lady seems like an idiot. On the garbage below alone, it seems like this article is nonsense.

"While diets high in protein and low in carbohydrates were shown to be beneficial for reproductive function, they had detrimental effects for health in mid-late life and also led to a shortened lifespan," says Solon-Biet.

"What this new research has shown is that amino acid balance is important it's best to vary sources of protein to ensure you're getting the best amino acid balance."
