High-calorie bingeing can be as addictive as cocaine, nicotine, study reveals

Reuters reports a new study that claims high-calorie foods may be as addictive as cocaine or nicotine. The study, from the journal Nature Neuroscience, notes that this type of binge eating could be the cause of compulsive eating and obesity.

Because the study subjects were rats, the findings cannot be directly related to obesity in humans but can add to our understanding of the disorders and various ways to treat it, according to the study authors.

In a laboratory setting, rats overate high calorie foods which “triggered addiction-like” brain responses, and showed that rats became compulsive eaters on high-calorie food.
