A new study in Cell claims too many calories, i.e. OVEREATING, inflames the hypothalamus and sends the brain HAYWIRE! Eating too much causes the brain to dispatch immune cells to destroy an invader that’s NOT really there; Reuters reports.
More reason not to over-consume. Ironically, many Americans overeat for another brain-related condition, food addiction! Food addiction means eating for emotional comfort and NOT out of hunger. Hunger is the body’s natural demand for nutrients.
So, next time a MANIAC accosts you on the subway, just smile, hand over your wallet and assume they’ve eaten too much.
