The Relationship Between Sugar and Alcoholism

 
Does a Sweet Tooth Mean Alcoholism?
 
 
"Sugar has often been considered the bio-chemical root cause of alcohol addiction."

An affinity for sweets appears to be a marker for those at
risk of developing alcoholism. This could be because both sugar and alcohol affect the same pleasure area of the brain.
 
Sugar-addicts beware; an affinity for sweets appears to be
a marker for those at risk of developing alcoholism. While previous studies have found a sugar-alcohol link in both humans and animals, this study finds that sugar addiction may predict alcoholism.
 
Lead author Alexei Kampov-Polevoy, an assistant professor
of psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, recruited 163 college-age social drinkers. Half of the participants had
a paternal history of alcoholism while the other half did not.

Kampov and colleagues asked each participant to rate a series of sugar solutions that increased in concentration. They judged each for sweetness and palatability. Our hedonic reaction -- how much we enjoy sugar -- is something we are born with, not something we learn later in life, notes Kampov.

Participants with a paternal history of alcoholism were 2.5 times more likely to enjoy sweets. Also, they were more likely to dislike the most diluted sugar solutions. Kampov suggests that the opioid system -- the part of the brain impacted by both sugar and alcohol -- is oversensitive in these subjects.

Researchers say in the future a simple test may help identify who is at risk for developing alcoholism long before one takes his first drink. The study was published in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research.
