Study: We Eat More During the Winter

Updated:

If you feel like you eat more during the cold winter months, you're not alone.

Researchers found many people eat more in the winter because of a primitive impulse to stock up on calories for the colder time of year.

This is true even though humans have evolved to live in heated conditions most of the time.

One study showed people eat on average 200 more calories a day when fall arrives.

Doctors say the trigger may be in part due to the change in light: when the days get shorter, our instincts kick in to eat more.

Researchers in Japan have invented a robot that essentially works like a seeing-eye dog to help the visually-impaired.

The researchers found it was successful in sensing and avoiding obstacles.
     
So far, it only works in areas where it has pre-loaded information about the dimensions, walls and doors of a certain room.

Researchers say in the future it could be useful in places where dogs can't go.
