About this resource

Is food addictive or are certain components in food addictive? Can 'Food Addiction‘ ('FA') explain the obesity epidemic? How could ‘FA’ be prevented or treated? These questions address the importance of the research area. ‘FA’ can be measured with the latest Yale Food Addiction Scale 2.0 questionnaire. Current research found a broad overlap of 'FA' and classic eating disorders like bulimia nervosa. This presentation will update those findings and discuss the underlying mechanism.
