If You Always Have Room For Dessert, Ghrelin May Be To Blame

And, assuming that this is the least bit true, if you eat the dessert, blame yourself.
A new study suggests that the appetite-inducing hormone ghrelin increases the incentive for humans to eat high-calorie foods, even on a full stomach. The results were reported at The Endocrine Society's 94th Annual Meeting in Houston.

In the study, rats lacking the ghrelin receptor gene ate less of a sweet treat after a full meal than did rodents whose ghrelin receptor gene was intact.
You fat rodent, you.
