Do you know that any artificial light makes a person hungry? And this is true both for animals and humans. An experiment was conducted on rodents, which were divided into two groups. One group was placed in the dark, and the other under artificial light.
Moreover, the experimental animals were given the same amount of food. As a result, those rodents who were under lights ate more than those who were in the dark. Subsequently, the first group of rats weighed almost twice as much as those who were in the dark. This is because the animals had to eat and not sleep as demanded by nature.
“This study explains why some people, despite the fact that they maintain the correct energy balance in the body still gain weight”, – says Professor Randy Nelson of Ohio State University.
