The science behind food cravings

The science behind food cravings | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
Exhibition examines the science behind food cravings
ClickTell Consulting's insight:

Notice the term “anti-trigger” used in the video (at 1:22). This is a way of avoiding a usually advertising/neuromarketing driven urge for a person to make an impulse purchase - such as suddenly stopping in a high street to buy certain food once that person has been exposed to a certain smell.

 

In our last year’s  blog post reply on the Centre For Connected Health we introduced a similar term referred to as “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. You can read more from here:

Jo,

A great post. Blended delicately, neuroscience, marketing and advertising can produce the sweetest pill that preventive care of today could wish for.

 

A while back at my company we coined the term “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. This came about as a result of trying to formulate an effective evidence-based model to encourage a healthy lifestyle in the field of chronic disorders.

 

Needless to say implemented properly insight of this nature offers a tremendously healthy ROI. Why else would companies such Coca-Cola & McDonalds spend as much money as they do in successfully trying to encourage us to buy into their message and product?

 

Sepe Sehati,
ClickTell Consulting

Obese people need more vitamin E, but actually get less | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
A recent study suggests that obese people with metabolic syndrome face an unexpected quandary when it comes to vitamin E - they need more than normal levels of the vitamin because their weight and other problems are causing increased oxidative stress, but those same problems actually cause their effective use of vitamin E to be reduced.

Given the three values of autonomy, beneficence, and nonmaleficence, what should he do?

How depleting the gut microbiota protects from obesity | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
In the past few years, research on gut microbiota (that is, all microorganisms, mainly bacteria, inhabiting our gut) has started to unravel its tremendous role in our body, and how it symbiotically affects the functioning of our organs. In particular, microbiota has also an impact on the way calories are absorbed and how fat cells develop. By studying mice without microbiota, scientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) Faculty of Medicine, Switzerland, were able to demonstrate how the absen

A team of scientists at the Children's Research Institute at UT Southwestern (CRI) has made a discovery that suggests cancer cells benefit more from antioxidants than normal cells, raising concerns about the use of dietary antioxidants by patients with cancer. The studies were conducted in specialized mice that had been transplanted with melanoma cells from patients. Prior studies had shown that the metastasis of human melanoma cells in these mice is predictive of their metastasis in patients.
