Merriam Webster describes addiction as “constant use of the known substance. Many people do think the word addiction means drug addiction. But the work addiction is stretching beyond these substances? The substance does not have to be entirely detrimental for causing addiction, and even an essential part of life can be ill from obsessions or addictions. Addiction is also known as food disorder in today’s world.

History of Food Additional

 

It is recorded that alcohol and drug addictions affect over 23.5 million people in Americans recently, and studies show that almost eight million people are fighting form food addiction. While the “addiction food” classification may seem to be relatively modern, the study of addiction food in some years back (the 1890s), just as when chocolate is introduced to as an addictive substance and to the consciousness of narcotic drug abuse. In the 1950s, the term “food addiction” was created and Overeaters Anonymous was discovered in 1960. Despite the fundamental situation regarding food, knowledge was very little during the 1960s and 70s, and the concept of group dining is discussed, rather than psychology journals and scientific research.

During the 1980s, eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia tempted most people attention, and during that time there is a similarity between eating disorders and drug addiction. Research findings have confirmed that those striving for anorexia are physically helpless on the outcomes of hunger. Most time, their bodies developed tolerance and insufficient food eating also achieve the same results in their body. Just like drug detoxification, when anorexia patient began to overeat, they may experience specific symptoms of “abstinence.” In addition to this studying, bulimia studies in the 1980s have shown high records on addition personality.

In the next year, the idea of addiction to the food industry may be difficult to examine, and it may lead to arguments among the professional experts. Further patterns of drug addiction and food addiction were found, such as abuse of substances, use of materials to treat negative emotions, loss of control, and laziness of habit to behavior despite the adverse consequences. Information obtained after the “food addiction” has been created, psychologists and researchers have broken this widespread disease into sub-categorized disorders, generally referred to as eating disorders.

Subcategories of Food Addiction in human health

 

Diet consumption disorders are different and look different from individuals to individuals. Although Mental Health experts have widely recognized the following classifications, many atypical cases are not included in these categories, as well as some minor subcategories.

  • Anorexia: Hunger and high weight loss
  • Bulimia: Eat and purging for weight loss.
  • Poor eating disorder: Compulsive, excessive feeding with uncontrolled purging.
  • Compulsive diet: unlimited eating without purging.

 

Why Food Addiction Matters To Our Health

 

Too much of Diet usually leads to addiction to the substance. In fact, most people who are struggling with food addiction are five times more likely to develop drug addiction and alcohol than healthy people. This is partly due to drugs used to relieve anxiety and depression, often associated with food addiction, but alcohol and many prescription drugs and medicines can be used for appetite and AIDS. On the other hand, substance addiction can lead to food addiction as an adaptation mechanism that does not seem to be controlled.

Studies show that these two diseases often relate to the history of the trauma, they are common neurotransmitters involved in food and substance addictions. Many experts assume that the genetic component is responsible for dependencies transmitted between generations, as a significant number of eating disorders affect families with at least one alcoholic father.
