An article about Traci, her research, and the lab appears on the front page of the Variety section in the Sunday March 29th Minneapolis Star Tribune. Check out the fun photo, reminiscent of the book cover.


Comfort Food Research Causes a Splash

Research on the Myth of Comfort Food has made quite a splash in the press. It was covered by the New York Times, NPR, the Today Show, and many others. Most of the articles include photographs of tempting comfort foods, and some get the story wrong, saying that comfort food makes you feel worse. Don’t panic. It doesn’t! Our research shows that it makes you feel better, but not any better than other foods make you feel. Or no food.
