Overeating and substance abuse are similar disorders

Overeating and substance abuse are similar disorders

The report is a summary of evidence presented last month at a conference sponsored by the National Hispanic Science Network on Drug Abuse. Several scientific presentations promoted the idea that addictive drugs hijack the normal food reward system that humans need to survive. For example, the dopamine signaling system in the brain is activated by food cues, such as the smell of turkey roasting in the oven. This system drives us to eat and feel satisfied after eating. But brain-imaging studies show this same system is at the core of drug addiction.

Discovering Addiction Genes

Discovering Addiction Genes

A combination of many factors including genetics, environment and behavior influence a person's addiction risk, making it an incredibly complicated disease . Searching among all of our 20,000 or so genes for a few that are involved in a complex disease can be quite costly and time consuming. That is why researchers often use what they and others know about a disease to narrow their focus down to a smaller number of "candidate genes".
