Do you want marijuana chemicals with that?
Fats in foods like potato chips and french fries make them nearly irresistible because they trigger natural marijuana-like chemicals in the body called endocannabinoids, researchers at the University of California, Irvine, have found.
The researchers discovered that when rats tasted something fatty, cells in their upper gut started producing endocannabinoids, while sugars and proteins did not have this effect.
Ok, so this is very sensationalistic and so forth, but what do you guys think of this? Do corporations have an ethical responsibility to make sure their products are not chemically addictive? Should we have sympathy for people addicted to carbs? How do we ensure a healthy disease free non-addictive food chain/distribution system for society? Other thoughts?
