Plz answer? Why do you think people use food as way to deal with stress?

this is my homework

It depends on the type of person. Some people use food, others (like me) whole themselves up in their room and do things on their computer (like anime XD). Some people even stop eating things when they are stressed.I think it's because when people eat, it distracts them from whatever they were thinking of. Maybe because the food is warm?

Some do, some don't. Just depends on the person and how they choose to get their mind off their troubles.

Food stimulates the senses, all of the effect them differently, for instance, chocolate releases the similar hormones to those of love & romance

some would say it's a habit that often starts in childhood. (not an excuse!) children are often fed for so many reasons besides hunger. as rewards,as punishment, for celebrations, family traditions, when feeling bad, when whiny, during stressful family occasions. (I remember receiving pieces of candy during my grandfathers's funeral and burial.. maybe to help distract me from the situation?) since this is homework, i'll leave my answer at that, you can consider if this idea is pertinent to your assignment ;)
(just a helpful hint, as I've seen your replies...."wonderful")
