Constantly Craving Pizza? There’s A Scientific Reason Why!

Don’t fell guilty if you want an extra slice… all the time! A new study from the University of Michigan says it is possible for people to be addicted to pizza (and other foods)

Registered dietitian Cameron Wells tells Mic: “[Casomorphins] really play with the dopamine receptors and trigger that addictive element.”
