ஓரியோ பிஸ்கட் ஒரு போதைபொருள் போல செயல்படுகிறது!


குழந்தைகளின் பிரிய பிஸிகெட் ஆகிவிட்டது ஓரியோ. கடைக்குப் போனால் முதலில் கண் தேடுவதும் ஓரியோ பிஸ்கட் ஆகத்தான் இருக்கிறது. அதே பாணியை பயன்படுத்தி பல பிஸ்கெட் நிறுவனங்கள் புதிதாக கிரீம் பிஸ்கெட்களை அறிமுகப்படுத்தியுள்ளன.


ஆனால் ஓரியோ பிஸ்கெட்களை சாப்பிடும் குழந்தைகளின் மூளை கோகைன் போதைப் பொருளை உண்ட உற்சாகத்தை அடைவதாக அமெரிக்க ஆய்வாளர்கள் கண்டறிந்துள்ளனர். இது தொடர்பாக கனெக்டிகட் கல்லூரியைச் சேர்ந்த அறிவியல் ஆய்வாளர்கள் ஓரியோ பிஸ்கெட்டை எலிகளுக்கு சாப்பிடக் கொடுத்து ஆய்வு மேற்கொண்டனர்.


அப்போது மூளைச் செல்களில் கோகைன் உட்கொண்டது போன்ற மாற்றம் ஏற்பட்டது. மேலும் ஓரியோ பிஸ்கட்டில் அதிக சர்க்கரையும், அதிக கொழுப்பும் அடங்கியிருப்பதாக கூறும் ஆய்வாளர்கள், இது போதைப் பொருளை ஒத்துள்ளது என்று கூறியுள்ளார்.

The white stuff in between your Oreo cookies may be a "cream" filling, but new research suggests it might as well be cocaine.


According to a new study from Connecticut College students and a professor of neuroscience, Oreo cookies (given to lab rats) are just as addictive as cocaine. And yes, just like most of us, lab rats went for the middle first.


“Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do,” said Professor Joseph Schroeder in a statement. “It may explain why some people can’t resist these foods despite the fact that they know they are bad for them.”


Schroeder and his team found that lab rats formed an "equally strong association" between the pleasure of eating an Oreo cookie and being in the same environment as cocaine or morphine. Research showed eating Oreos activated more neurons in the brain's "pleasure center" than being exposed to drugs.


Several studies have shown sugar itself is just as addictive as drugs like cocaine and often cause deadly diseases like obesity, diabetes and cancer. Health professionals are particularly concerned about our daily sugar consumption because it's in almost everything we eat.


For the Connecticut College study, lab rats were put in a maze with an Oreo cookie on one end and rice cakes on the other. Of course, unsurprisingly, all of the rats went toward the Oreo first.


The team then took these results and compared them to another study that injected lab rats with a shot of cocaine or morphine on one side of a maze and a shot of saline on the other. The result? The rats gravitated toward the "drugs" just like they did with the Oreos.


“Even though we associate significant health hazards in taking drugs like cocaine and morphine, high-fat/high-sugar foods may present even more of a danger because of their accessibility and affordability,” said neuroscience major Jamie Honohan.

Thanks for sharing this Durga Sis...

Thank God...I don't like these cookies at all....:pray:...enakku indha taste eh pidikadhu...tastes like sand...

Not only Oreo akka, other cookies also have additives in them, and too much simple carbohydrates are never good, especially for growing children...Studies show that children who consume too much sweets and sugar tend to become hyperactive...I mean it is okay if we have these once in a while, but nowadays kids have these cookies as a daily snack...it is a really concerning issue...Hope, all parents take a note of this article and try to provide the kids some healthy (namma oorr) snacks...:pray:

Jeeva....
