Jag glädjer mig ibland åt att jag inte är beroende av några starkt destruktiva produkter. I ”Carrot Addiction”, publicerad i Australia and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, rapporteras följande:
A case report of carrot addiction is presented with a review of the literature and comment on the role of beta carotene in addictive behaviour. … The addiction occurred in a 49-year-old woman under conditions of stress due to marital problems, leading to a depressive illness and increased smoking. The patient maintained that the sensations of carrot craving and withdrawal were quite distinct from those associated with smoking.
