Food addiction

TORONTO: A new study has found that food addiction is an identifiable condition with clinical symptoms, characterised by a psycho-behavioural profile as in conventional drug-abuse disorders.

The study suggests that people who become dependent on highly palatable foods engage in a compulsive pattern of consumption, similar to that of drug and alcohol addicts. “These results strongly reinforce the view that food addiction is an identifiable condition with clinical symptoms, characterised by a psycho-behavioural profile that is similar to conventional drug-abuse disorders,” said Caroline Davis, York University, Toronto. These findings were presented at the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behaviour. IANS
