After consuming the drink, many fuels your appetite. Scientists from Indiana University have established, this is happening due to the activation of specific areas of the brain under the influence of alcohol.
35 non-Smoking women decided to experiment. In the first stage, they were injected intravenously or alcohol solution, or a placebo. About it writes The Daily Mail. Next, the volunteers were asked to rate the flavor of several dishes and dine out by selecting the pasta with meat sauce or noodles with beef.
With the introduction of the solution of alcohol in volunteers increased appetite and sensitivity to smells. Interestingly, one-third of subjects under the influence of alcohol ate less than in the placebo group. Apparently, alcohol activates the receptors responsible for the perception of odors.
