CA Cookies Anonymous or OA? –
October 18, 2019 – They’re not only delicious, but they can also be dangerously addictive. A 2013 paper published by researchers from the University of Bordeaux suggests the ingredients in a chocolate chip cookie triggers the same addictive response in the brain as cocaine and marijuana. A traditional chocolate chip cookie contains 2.5 teaspoons of sugar, which the study says induces some of the same responses as cocaine. As for chocolate, it contains small amounts of a compound that trigger the same part of your brain as the addictive ingredient marijuana, THC, the study says. The two ingredients together create a harmonious flavor that can double the addiction. Now that makes perfect sense to crave the dangerously addictive treat. See more on the study here.
