Ice cream for kids - like a drug

It turns out that high-calorie foods that are rich in carbohydrates, such as ice cream, affect the brain like drugs and are addictive. This assumption was made by experts Kyle Berger and Eric Stays from the Oregon Institute. Scientists checked how the brain of a child reacts to ice cream.

To this end, 151 adolescents were attracted to the study; Then scanned the brain of children. Experiment participants were shown a photo of a chocolate shake before a two-week “frozen” diet and after. Scientists simultaneously with the photo demonstration evaluated the activity of their brain.

And that turned out to be: children, after consuming a large amount of ice cream, got less pleasure from the chocolate cocktail than before the experiment. They have decreased activity in the area of ​​the brain, which is associated with a reward. Scientists noted that such a unique activity is associated exclusively with ice cream. The adolescents' brains didn’t react to hamburgers and fries.

The scientists' conclusions are as follows: the more a child eats fatty, sugary foods, the more his sensitivity to such foods decreases, and he needs larger doses of ice cream to enjoy. All this becomes the beginning of the development of obesity.
