Housecall for Health

You may crave foods that aren't exactly healthy for you, but a new study says you shouldn't call it an addiction.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

If you've been blaming your junk food habits on addiction, one study says think again.  Previous research suggested foods high in fat, sugar and salt stimulated parts of the brain similar to the way nicotine and cocaine would.

But scientists at North Carolina State University say, although we do respond to certain tastes and textures, it's not addiction and doesn't affect brain chemistry in the same way.
