The study explains why people from poor families are more often obese. A group of scientists from the USA as part of an experiment tried to find differences in attitudes toward food among families with different incomes. The results of this work tells the newspaper The Independent.
Volunteers were offered a free dinner with unlimited food at the table. People from families with high income in most cases eat just enough to satisfy your hunger. The lower the income of a person was, the more he was trying to eat "in reserve".
It seems that this habit is formed in childhood. Growing up, these people continue to eat, ignoring the feeling of satiety. The result is formation of excess weight, obesity and diseases associated with overweight.
