Oreo cookies cause addiction: U.S. scientists Consistent with a report to be distributed formally at the approaching Society for Neuroscience gathering in San Diego, California, U. S., sugary, fattening treats can initiate the cerebrum in a comparative way as cocaine does in lab rats.

The aim of the study was bring out the potential addictiveness of high-fat/ high-sugar nourishments, Professor Joseph Schroeder and his people discovered rats shaped a just as solid cooperation between the pleasurable impacts of consuming Oreos and a particular environment as they did between cocaine or morphine and a nature's domain.

Schroeder said, "Our exploration underpins the hypothesis that high-fat/ high-sugar sustenances invigorate the mind in the same way that medications do. It might illustrate why some individuals can't oppose these nourishments notwithstanding the way that they know they are awful for them."

The exploration was the brainchild of neuroscience major Jamie Honohan '13. A researcher in the College's Holleran Center for Community Action and Public Policy, Honohan was intrigued by how the predominance of high-fat and high-sugar sustenances in low-wage neighborhoods helped the corpulence scourge.

They likewise considered that consuming treats actuated more neurons in the cerebrum's "pleasure focus" than presentation to pills of misuse.
