Fast food chains are addicted to fast food, according to a new study.
Fast food addiction is a condition that is linked to high rates of depression, obesity and other chronic health problems.
Fast Food Addiction: A Fact or Fiction?
A new study conducted by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people who ate at fast food restaurants had higher rates of anxiety and depression than those who ate out more frequently.
The study analyzed data from 2,200 adults, ages 18 to 64, who were part of the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study.
The study found that fast food consumers had a higher rate of anxiety, depression and substance use disorders than non-fast food consumers.
The authors said the study showed that fast foods may be an addiction and that people should avoid eating at fast-food restaurants if they have a problem with eating disorders.
The American Academy also said that fast-casual fast food chains like Wendy’s, Chipotle and McDonald’s were all highly addictive.
The group says the research also showed that people with a high risk for depression and anxiety were more likely to have high rates in the study.
The AAAN said the findings should be a warning for people to avoid fast food.
The association says that the new study shows that the American people who eat at fast foods are also those who are at risk for anxiety, depressive disorders, substance use disorder and other health problems, and should not eat at these fast food places if they do not have the same problems.
The results are in line with other research that has found that eating fast food at a fast-service restaurant is linked with higher rates and higher levels of chronic disease.
