Cocaine and Oreos?

In this study, rats were used to test the effects of Oreos on the brain and whether rats were drawn to the fat and sugar found in this tasty treats. In this study, researchers discovered that Oreos can actually stimulate the pleasure center of rats and cause a higher neuron stimulation than that caused by cocaine or morphine use. Our brain chemistry is responsible for this sort of addiction which is why eating healthy and learning about different foods (especially processed foods) is necessary in order to remain healthy.
