Special Issue in Nutrients: Food Addiction and Eating Addiction: Scientific Advances and their Clinical, Social and Policy Implications
The term, food addiction, is increasingly popular in published literature and highly topical in the mainstream media. Emerging evidence suggests that food addiction may be a previously unrecognized factor that contributes to the rise in obesity. Research suggests that similarities may exist between food addiction and other classic forms of dependence, such as those involving alcohol and drugs. This Special Issue will explore past and present research concerning food addiction.
