Ice creams and chips are addictive just like drugs
We open a packet of chips and eat it. Then we open another one. We will only take one. Another one, another one. Let's say we eat some. We say to each that this is the last. That there is no more. Enough of the exaggeration!
On the contrary, within a short time we find ourselves with a blank paper in hand.
A new study reassures us that we are not alone in this story.
The fault lies with potato chips and any processed food that contains added ingredients such as salt, sugar, dyes, additives.
Researchers found that ice cream, cookies, soft drinks and sugary cereals are just as addictive as nicotine, cocaine or heroin.
It's shocking how 1 in 10 people meet the criteria for a substance use disorder diagnosis.
