Dear Valued Subscriber,


Did you know that Scripps Research Lab, under the direction of Sherrie Gould, are growing stem cells from the biopsies of a small group of Parkinson's patients and "training" their own cells to become brain cells to replace the dopamine deficient cells? Here is the article.


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


It Does Not Take Much to Indulge Temptation.

A study in the November issue of Appetite examined the role of environmental cues in steering people's dietary decisions in response to food temptations. 


Based on the notion that people show a tendency to conform to eating standards derived from the eating behavior of others, it was hypothesized that communication of other people's dietary decisions through environmental cues affect whether and what people eat.


Conformity to environmental cues about food intake was assessed in a local bakery and a lab setting. Participants were presented with a bowl of individually wrapped chocolates. The presence of empty wrappers was manipulated, to indicate whether others who had been in the same situation had or had not eaten. Participants were required to choose between a healthy and an unhealthy snack. Food wrappers indicated whether previous participants had chosen the healthy or the unhealthy snack.


As expected, participants were more likely to take chocolates in the presence of an environmental cue that others did too. Also, participants were more likely to choose a snack that was consistent with the choice of others.


The findings support the hypothesis that environmental cues steer people's decisions concerning food intake and food choice. Moreover, the results suggest that only small changes in the environmental cues may support healthy eating behavior. 


Steve: You will be hearing a lot more about this in the coming months and years. They are called food cues, and they are not just about what others do. Food cues are ubiquitous in society.
