Fast and processed food manufacturers use neuroscience to get us addicted to their junk – Is anyone really surprised??

That fountain of knowledge, Dr Karl has a great post about food addiction on the ABC’s Science website.

Dr Karl almost seems surprised when he discovered these large multinational food polluters use neuroscience to get their customers addicted. I call them food polluters because for the most part they remove the healthy components (like the germ and bran of wheat) from their ingredients and add unhealthy, addictive chemicals.

I wrote a post on Kraft over two years ago that revealed how their scientists had colluded with the likes of cigarette makers PhillipMorris on how to make their products addictive. I am glad that the science is catching up and consumers are gradually finding out the truth.

After many years of my own personal research and experience I have come to the conclusion that to live a healthy life, it’s far more important to leave unhealthy options out than to take expensive supplements. I tried this myself for a full year and with making the one change of avoiding all packaged, processed and fast foods, lost 10kg and friends kept telling me I looked younger!
