People mad about food must have brain disorder


The right anterior cerebral hemisphere, probably thinking about foie gras or something else delicious.
 
Unless you’re a neurosurgeon, chances are you don’t mention the right anterior cerebral hemisphere very much in daily conversation. Yet, if you love food, especially fine food, that part of the brain holds the key. This according to two scientists from a university hospital in Zurich, Switzerland, who completed a paper showing people who suffer lesions in this part of the brain become obsessed with food, a “preference for fine eating” and Rachel Ray’s 30 Minute Meals. (OK, I made up the last one.)

It’s called Gourmad Syndrome and besides creating an increase in the grocery bill, it seems to be a benign disease.
