(Getty Images)

(StudyFinds.org) – Quitting smoking is no easy feat, especially when nicotine withdrawal kicks in. Now, a new study finds one of the immediate side-effects of giving up cigarettes is a craving for junk food. Researchers from the University of Minnesota Medical School say they’ve discovered a brain link between a person’s addiction to nicotine and poor eating habits.

The study points to the opioid system — the brain functions which regulate both addiction and appetite — being responsible for smokers seeking out high-calorie foods when they’re suffering from nicotine withdrawal. It’s a vicious cycle for people trying to

My second-favorite running T-shirt quote is usually attributed to the versatile New Zealander Rod Dixon, whose range stretched from an Olympic medal in the 1,500 meters to a New York City Marathon victory: “All I want to do,” he said, “is drink beer and train like an animal.” (My favorite is from Noureddine Morceli: “When I race, my mind is full of doubts. Who will finish second? Who will finish third?”) I don’t even like beer all that much, but there’s something appealing in the simple clarity of Dixon’s ambitions—something, it turns out, that seems to resonate with

Losing weight changes the way people respond to food marketing

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Do you want fries with that?” It’s age-old question anyone buying fast food knows well. However, is the relentless advertising for sugary drinks and high-fat junk food something that people can overcome? Researchers with the University of British Columbia and the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris say marketing schemes really do tempt some people more than others, but losing weight can change all that.

According to lead study author Dr. Yann Cornil, an assistant professor at UBC’s School of Business, people with weight issues have a weakness to the almost constant bombardment of advertising campaigns designed to

Depending on where you live, you may be in good company if you’ve ever bashfully nudged a server to please clear the empties from your table! That’s according to a research company that’s analyzed the self-reported beer tolerance levels of residents within each state.

‘People need to understand these products are harmful’

According to the OECD, nearly 60% of people are overweight – of which around 25% have obesity. Measured against national guidelines, 50% of people have an ‘unhealthy diet’ while two in five people don’t eat enough fruit and veg.

It is well-documented that obesity is linked to rising rates of non-communicable diseases like some cancers, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. This carries a massive economic toll in terms of direct and indirect costs. On average, 8.4% of the health expenditure in OECD countries will be spent on obesity and related conditions between 2020 and 2050.

The OECD suggests that

Banning junk food ads must be the start, rather than the end, of a multipronged national effort equal to the growing size of the obesity and health challenge.

The news that the government is advancing its plans to restrict TV and online junk food advertising is the culmination of years of work by clinicians, campaigners, and people living with obesity. As the Chair of the APPG on Obesity, I’m delighted the government is taking this step in the right direction on the largest post-pandemic public health challenge.
