OREOS – as addicitive as drugs


English: Double Stuf Oreos, by Nabisco.

Research by University of Connecticut shows that in terms of neurological angle, “Oreos and other high-fat, high-sugar foods have this potential to be just as addicting as drugs of abuse.” It’s about time to think about how we deal with unhealthy food. For example, freedom of an individual vs costs (e.g. medical) on other tax payers!!!
