Health News Digest: Sensory and Social Influences on Eating
Chua Ern Teck | Juliet Jacobs | Law Yao Hua
We discuss the latest in health news. This week, we bring you on a tour of the eating experience--from the tongue to the nose and we end with the people who eat with us. Join us and learn how a “dulled” tongue drives sugar intake, how smells trigger the incinerator within you, and how a mirror makes you eat more. We speak to Celine Riera, Assistant Professor in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center; Robin Dando, Assistant Professor in Department of Food Science, Cornell University; Suzanne Higgs, Professor in Psychobiology of Appetite, University of Birmingham; and Sarah-Jeanne Salvy, Associate Professor at University of Alabama.
