Submission + - Fatty Foods May Cause Cocaine-Like Addiction (cnn.com)

WrongSizeGlass writes: From the "there's an excuse for everything" department:
CNN is reporting that Fatty foods may cause cocaine-like addiction. "A new study in rats suggests that high-fat, high-calorie foods affect the brain in much the same way as cocaine and heroin." "Not surprisingly, the rats that gorged themselves on the human food quickly became obese."
I'm a big eater, but I've never been tempted to sell all my stuff, skip work and ruin every relationship I have just to get another burger fix. How about a little personal responsibility for our food choices?
