Body Mass Index

November 17, 2010 by staff 

Body Mass Index, (UKPA) – Heavier people have a greater sense of smell for food, scientists have said.

Dr Lorenzo Stafford, of the University of Portsmouth’s Department of Psychology, found that people with a higher body mass index (BMI) had a poorer sense of smell for non-food odours and greater sensitivity for the smell of food.

He also found that people had a stronger sense of food smell after eating.
