Study: Action Movies Could Be Making Us Eat More

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Are action movies making us fat?

A new study suggests the more exciting the movie, the more we tend to eat.

Researchers at Cornell University published the study in the Journal of American Medical Association.

They had 94 undergraduates watch 20 minutes of TV.

A third watched the Michael Bay thriller “The Island”, another third watched Charlie Rose and the final third watched “The Island” without sound.

The students watching the movie ate 98 percent more than those watching the talk show.

Those watching the movie without sound even ate more than the talk show group.
