Are Cookies as Addictive as Cocaine?

A study from the University of Bordeaux in France has discovered that cookies are as addictive as cocaine! Researchers say the sugar and sweet taste give you a reward that can be substituted for the pleasure you would get from cocaine. AND --- the cookie is more attractive, socially acceptable and they found MORE rewarding.

A normal sized cookie contains 2 grams of sugar and eating one give you some of the same physiological responses as snorting cocaine. No surprise here --- Chocolate Chip Cookies are the nation's more popular. The Cookie industry is growing and business analysts say it will be -- worldwide --- a 39 Billion Dollar Industry in just a few years.

They needed to do scientific research for this? Any parent at Christmastime could have told them that!
