A study from Cornell University revealed that eating habits are sometimes altered based on who you're dining with.
What causes overeating? It could be down to a brain hormone deficiency.
There may be a way to cut back on the urge to eat, which could help combat obesity. Scientists have discovered a peptide and hormone that when administered to a specific area of the brain, may reduce the desire for food.
Past research has shown that people with eating disorders as well as those who suffer from obesity are more impulsive than healthy individuals. The Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and the University of Cambridge sought more answers.
