Julian Buchanan's curator insight, July 25, 2013 12:21 AM

The idea of addiction being understood as a brain disease is scientifically flawed.

Ziggi Ivan Santini's curator insight, July 27, 2013 6:47 AM

Addiction not a brain disease, but a behavioral disorder that can and often does result in brain damage. In the same way, obesity is not a disease, but the result of unhealthy and often compulsive behaviors.
