London: In what could be a solution tochildhood obesity, European scientists have invented atalking, computerised weighing device that tracks how quicklyfood is gobbled off the plate.
Experts believe eating too fast can interfere with aninbuilt signalling system that tells the brain to stop eatingwhen the stomach becomes full. But early in life, with instructions like "make sure youeat it all up", children are taught to override these signals,the BBC reported. The scientists set out to design a device to pace eating,primarily to help patients with the eating disorder bulimia,who tend to eat quickly. PTI
