So, my weakness and cravings for chocolate chip cookies makes sense.
Apparently, chocolate chip cookies, (which have been voted America's favorite cookie in polls) are apparently just as addictive as drugs. A study from the "University of Bordeaux" says
"The sweet and sugar reward can not only substitute to addictive drugs, like cocaine, but can be more rewarding and attractive. At the neurobilogical level, the neural substrates of sugar and sweet reward appear to be more robust than those of cocaine."
Also, that "A regular chocolate chip cookie, with 2.5 grams of sugar induces some of the same responses as cocaine."
(Plus the combination of chocolate), "Triggers the same part of your brain as the addictive ingredient marijuana" Sounds like a lethal combo!
