As reported by ScienceDaily (7/10) in their news story, Brain's Response to Sweets May Indicate Risk for Development of Alcoholism, recent studies have shown that there is a definite correlation between the brain neural pathways that prefer sweets and alcohol.

The results will appear in the December issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research and serve to highlight how consuming sweets may lead to an addiction later on in one's life. Those who feel they are experiencing an alcohol dependency should seek qualified medical help including contacting a detox center such as Harbor Village.

As reported in http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/07/130710182932.htm, "It has long-been known that animals bred to prefer alcohol also drink considerably greater quantities of sweetened water than do animals without this selective breeding for alcohol preference," explained David A. Kareken, deputy director of the Indiana Alcohol Research Center, a professor in the department of neurology at Indiana University School of Medicine, and corresponding author for the study. "More recently, it has become clear that animals bred to prefer the artificial sweetener, saccharin, also drink more alcohol. Although the data in humans are somewhat more variable, some studies do show that alcoholics, or even non-alcoholics with a family history of alcoholism, have a preference for unusually sweet tastes. Thus, while the precise reasons remain unclear, there does seem to be significant evidence suggesting some link between the rewarding properties of both sweet tastes and alcohol."

"Alcohol abuse can start innocently enough with just a few drinks and then evolve into a serious dependency. At a detox center like Harbor Village, you will be guided on a path to recovery," said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
