Evidence for ‘Food Addiction’ in Humans

Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior has made yet another study on food behaviors on the human race and why they eat so much food. Sure, everyone is very different, some eat a lot, while others eat little, but in recent studies it is said that whether you are thin or not there is evidence of food addiction in humans. A questionnaire was made for men and women in Yale University most of whom were obese and it was said that food addiction is the norm for most human beings and it is how they cope or soothe themselves with different kinds of emotions (sadness, happiness, confusion, anger, etc.) While ‘food addicts’ were the same in their age or body weight from people who were not addicted to food, they showed a larger number of binge-eating disorder and depression, and more symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
