Many people have the habit of smelling the food which they eat. But a new study conducted by the researchers from the University of California Berkeley said that delicious smelling foodstuffs like a sandwich or any other can add pounds to your weight and make you fat.
The sense of smell and the odor of food has a major role in inducing the body’s ability to deal with the calories. The people who smell food gains more than the people who don’t. According to the study the people who don’t smell the food, their body has more ability to burn the calories compared to those who smell. During the study, the researchers analyzed the mice and their smelling ability was prohibited using the gene therapy. But some stem cells were attached to the neurons so that the mice can regain this ability after few weeks span.
In another group of mice, the ability to smell the food was alleviated than the normal. This was done just to check how the smelling ability is linked to an increased body weight. During the test, both the group of mice were given the same amount of food and the same foodstuff to eat. The obtained results from both the groups were them compared with each other on basis of the weight.
The research team noticed that the mice with a reduced sense of smell have lost weight even when they consumed the same amount of food as that of the heightened smelling ability group. The reduced sense of smelling ability has shed away more calories with the help of sympathetic nervous system.
Apart from weight, there was one advantage seen in the alleviated smelling ability group. The advantage was that these animals who have shown glucose intolerance had brought their glucose levels to the normal. While the other group with a reduced sense of smell has shown some drawback. For instance, this group has shown a high level of noradrenaline hormones which affect the body’s ability to fight against stress.
The results of the study show an important link between the smelling the food and the weight. The findings of the study have been published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
