Well this isn’t the kind of news I like to read!! A new study suggests that cookies are as addicting as actual drugs!!
“The study, to be presented at the Society for Neuroscience’s annual conference, also claims that rats, like humans, like to eat Oreo’s creamy center first.”
HaHa – that was probably the best part of the study!
But on a more serious note here is what else the study said
“Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do,” professor Joseph Schroeder said. “It may explain why some people can’t resist these foods," he added, echoing a common refrain, "despite the fact that they know they are bad for them.”
So now we alllll know why I can’t just have ONE Oreo!!! Ok I’m off to go find some cookies.
