Health Desk: Dieting is essential for health, but excessive intake can sometimes be harmful. Diet does not stay in balance due to food impulse. Some circuits in the brain are responsible for this food impulse. This circuit was invented by Georgia scientists. This is contrary to a research published in the medical journal Nature Communication.
Research by the University of Georgia found that MCH (melanin concentrating hormone) is responsible for food impulses. Rats were included in the research. MCH was activated in the brains of some rats. Subsequently, there was a food influx in these rats.
According to Emily Noble, a scientist involved in the research, her research will facilitate therapy for people who are overweight.
