A new study found that chocolate is basically the same as a highly addicting drug!

Eating chocolate activates the same neurotransmitters in the brain that drive drug addiction or binge eating.

The study was conducted on rats who would eat M&Ms. It was found that the brain would produce a natural, drug-like chemical when the rats were eating them.

The leader of the study said:

"The same brain area we tested here is active when obese people see foods and when drug addicts see drug scenes."

Wow. So when someone says they're a "chocoholic" they aren't kidding.

This is actually kinda scary.

Anyone else suddenly hungry for chocolate?
