A new study conducted by researchers at Cornell University reveals that people are more inclined to eat the first thing that they lay their eyes on in their refrigerators.

Around 200 participants took part in the study, with the researchers taking pictures of the refrigerators of the first 100 participants and then rearranging the items for the second 100 participants.

The researchers found that people were three times more likely to eat what they first saw compared to the fifth item.

"We found a really strong tendency towards the food which is visible. If you put your least healthy food at the front of the cupboard or refrigerator, that's the one you are most likely to eat. You are much less likely to eat the fifth or tenth item you see when you come home tired from work", lead researcher Professor Brian Wansink said.
