Foods: "Bacon, cheesecake, and other delicious yet fattening foods may be addictive...high-fat, high-calorie foods affect the brain in much the same way as cocaine and heroin....the study found...The neurotransmitter dopamine appears to be responsible for the behavior...Dopamine is involved in the brain's pleasure (or reward) centers, and it also plays a role in reinforcing behavior...Overeating caused the levels of a certain dopamine receptor in the brains of the obese rats to drop, the study found. In humans, low levels of the same receptors have been associated with drug addiction and obesity, and may be genetic, Kenny says." http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/03/28/fatty.foods.brain/index.html
