Addicted To Junk Food?

A new study led by the Scripps Research Institute in Florida revealed just how extraordinarily addictive junk food actually is. In essence, the researchers found that junk foods exert an addictive pull as powerful as that conferred by the most highly addictive narcotic drugs. While it's understood that what's true for rats isn't necessarily true for humans, the behavioral response is close enough for at least some experts to suggest that obesity should be reclassified as a psychiatric disorder. Understand the implications of what this study reveals about the brain, eating habits, and obesity in this latest health podcast.

    This is an excellent research that can be generalized to a large extent to humans in the U.S. where the food manufacturers spend millions of dollars to determine the best junk food to which humans will become addicted ASAP. Would you please send to me a copy of the research results or the exact title of the article and the name and date of the journal in which it was published.
