Can your food control you?


Can your food control you? At the Museum of Science in London there was an exhibition that finished today and discussed this issue in innovative and interactive ways. There were questions that were asked to the audience on the psychology behind our decisions, at the supermarket for instance. In an era where marketing and food packaging play an important role in the way we eat and drink, initiatives such as this one can contribute to a better understanding of food consumption. The latest research shows that our natural tendency to eat fatty and sweet food can be used by the food industry to let us eat more. Even simple things such as the shape of a spoon can influence us by giving a sense of freshness! It's incredible how the enviornment can have an impact on our palate!
