Saturated Fatty Acids as Possible Key Amplifiers of Psoriatic Dermatitis.
The Journal of investigative dermatology
The association of obesity with psoriasis is well known, but the molecular link between these two entities is incompletely characterized.

They also suggest that dietary manipulation could improve psoriasis.
