"Addiction is a strong word, but it might be a really helpful word to push us to recognize the power of certain food on the brain," notes Elissa Epel from the Center for Obesity Assessment, Study and Treatment, University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 4).
"There is some evidence that becoming obese does blunt that reward system, so we do know that overexposure to [foods such as] McDonald's can cause those brain changes."
