ABC's The Chew cites UB study on why comfort food makes people happy

Published February 8, 2013

UB research demonstrates why "comfort food" is a good way to describe this kind of nourishment. Hint: it's because of a specific connection we make when we eat it.

A segment of ABC News’ show The Chew about new twists on comfort food classics notes that a UB study found that comfort food really does make people happier because when people eat comfort food, they immediately think of their families. The show appeared on television stations throughout the country, including WCVB-TV in Boston.
