A shocking twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan’s increasingly terrible movies. The brain is the zombie! A news story that is the best motivation never to diet:
Like other parts of the body, brain cells begin to eat themselves as a last-ditch source of energy to ward off starvation, a study found.
The body responds by producing fatty acids, which turn up the hunger signal in the brain and increase our impulse to eat. . . .
Tests on mice found that stopping the brain cells from eating themselves – a process known as autophagy – prevented levels of hunger from rising in response to starvation.
