Food, the drug of choice

Did you know that some foods elicit reactions in the brain similar to those caused by recreational drugs? According to a new study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, researchers examined magnetic resonance images of 48 healthy women who tasted chocolate milkshakes, finding that reaction patterns in particular parts of the brain were similar in response to foods as to the reaction pattern of  drugs.   It appears that there’s a physical aspect rather than just a mental aspect when it comes to food addiction!
