News: Junk Food Addicted Rats Rather Die than eat Healthy

Submitted by on Saturday, 7 August 2010No Comment


In a series of tests conducted over three years, rats addicted to junk food starved themselves to death, rather than eat healthy food (when junk food access was blocked, and only healthy food access was given) –  (published in the journal Nature Neuroscience).

The research strongly suggests that many modern humans also suffer from junk food addiction; however scientists indicate that unlike rats, all humans with access to junk food do not become obese (as in the case with rats); saying the cause of this difference could be the influence of health knowledge and social pressure humans posses.
