Washington, D.C.  – New research by a neuroscientist has found that lab animals  self-dosing on High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), the industrial sweetener  used in hundreds of grocery store products, followed the same pattern  of behavior as those that were self-dosing on cocaine.

Addiction  expert, Dr. Francesco Leri, an Associate Professor of Neuroscience and  Applied Cognitive Science at the University of Guelph in Ontario,  Canada, presented new research  to the Canadian Association for Neuroscience that showed how High  Fructose Corn Syrup caused behavioral reactions in rats similar to those  produced by addictive drugs. He concluded that, “Addiction to unhealthy  foods could help explain the global obesity epidemic.”
