Contaminated and Unusual Food Combinations: What Do People with Prader-Willi Syndrome Choose?
Dykens, Elisabeth M.
Mental Retardation, v38 n2 p163-71 Apr 2000
This study examined the willingness to eat contaminated food and odd food combinations in 50 adolescents and adults with Prader-Willi syndrome and controls (some matched for IQ). Although Prader-Willi subjects and mentally retarded controls showed similar understandings about food, the Prader-Willi subjects endorsed eating contaminated food as well as unusual edible and inedible food combinations.
