While others have studied the effects of binge eating on the brain, this study is the first to look at its molecular effects on the expression of certain proteins in the body.

For The Feelers
For a long time I pretended not to be a feeler. The cool girl image of myself did not include a lot of crying or sensitivity. "Sometimes I tear up at weddings," I'd say casually. "But most things don't really bother me." When my first baby was born, I let go of this fake version of myself out of pure necessity. Not only could I not stop the inevitable swell of emotion over my son, I couldn't stop feeling everything. Every news story bothered me, every random act of kindness excited me, every single, stupid diaper commercial made me weep. I thought: This is it. I'm officially crazy. It was honestly a r...

17 Surprising Reasons You're Stressed Out
By Amanda MacMillan You're probably all too aware of the major sources of stress in your life -- money, your terrible commute, the construction workers who start jackhammering at 5 a.m. But stress and anxiety don't have to just come from obvious or even negative sources. "There are plenty of chronic strains and low-grade challenges that don't necessarily overwhelm you in the moment, but almost take more of a toll in the long run," says Scott Schieman, Ph.D., professor of sociology at the University of Toronto. These are some of unexpected reasons why you might feel anxious or agitated. By recognizing them for wh...

Buying and Selling Binge Eating Disorder
A drug company recently received FDA approval to peddle its speed-like pill for 'Binge Eating Disorder' (the very same pill that is already widely overused for ADHD). And it is sparing no expense pushing the drug -- a former world tennis champ is the shill and commercials are everywhere. Five years ago, I predicted Binge Eating Disorder would become a new fad diagnosis and a wonderful target for Pharma disease-mongering. I tried to convince the DSM-5 group to drop it, but failed. Now we are off to the races. My prediction is that, with a massive marketing campaign behind it, BED will become one of the most common of al...
