Do you find it hard to resist junk food?

Having trouble saying no to junk food may not be simply a test of willpower, as a study suggests the brain may actually enable cravings.

According to researchers, the results of the study suggest that the ideal solution to effective self-restraint lies in optimal brain health. Programs designed to enhance or preserve dorsolateral cortex function could help reduce an individual’s likelihood of developing obesity and other chronic conditions like tooth decay, gum disease, and diabetes.
