Food’s are as addictive as drugs. We are always been asked to stay away from drugs because of their negative influence on us and once you are hooked to it, it is very difficult to comeback to reality. But are drugs the only thing which is addictive?
Of course not like drugs there are many food items which are as addictive as drugs. The result is that we become physically or mentally dependent on these foods and keep munching them to cure the ridiculous addictions. And they also have the similar chemicals effects on body as drugs.
Consuming a large amount of cookies might seem as an habit but it is not it is an addiction. Jamie Honohan of Connecticut College conducted some experiment’s on a rat, he injected the rats with cocaine and put them up in an maze containing Oreo’s and rice cakes.
He realized that the animals moved to the area containing the Oreos, which they clearly preferred to the rice cakes. They became excited after eating the cream filling of the Oreos, just as they remained excited when injected with the drugs.
Hoonah after the testing the proteins from the rats he realized that rats found more pleasure in Oreo than cookie.
We all know that meat is good source of protein. Some people consume animal meat to meet their protein requirement but some are just addicted to it.
Some do not know that meat contains something called as hypoxanthine, similar to caffeine which satisfies us. Hypoxanthine even has the same properties as caffeine. Older meat contains more hypoxanthine, which is why some people exhibit withdrawal symptoms and a serious craving for this type of food if they do not eat it for a while.
Once you are addicted to hypoxanthine to reach your level of satisfaction you need to consume more meat.
This is because cheese contains the opiate molecules casein and casomorphins. These casomorphins are similar substances like morphine or heroin. They attach themselves to the brain receptors that drugs like morphine and heroin do. In response, the brain releases dopamine in the same way as when someone takes drugs. Cheese makers know these facts and take advantage of them to sell more of their products.
The United States tops every other nation in caffeine consumption. The average American drinks three cups of coffee a day, and that is without counting their intake from other products like energy drinks and soda. Why do Americans drink so much coffee, you might ask? It could be the result of an addiction.
This beverage contains caffeine, which has been crowned the “world’s most addictive and widely used drug.” It triggers the release of dopamine, making us feel good in the same way that drugs make users feel good.
Quit eating a bag of chips is very hard, did this happen anytime with you? According to study, this is because they are as addictive as drugs. So once you start eating the contents of a bag of chips, you might not stop.
Like cheese, potato chips trigger the release of dopamine that messes with our bodies and gives us the same effect as drugs do for users. Research by Dr. Tony Goldstone of Imperial College London revealed that pictures of potato chips and junk foods in general excited the same part of the brain as images of alcohol do for boozers and pictures of drugs stimulate for drug users.
