Leave it up to scientists to ignore all the real science in the world and to take up a study about delicious Oreos!

It's just that in this study, they were totally using rats instead of humans, probably because the ad they placed for volunteers to do a study on cocaine and Oreos had way too many people show up! Ha!
Apparently the cookies trigger the same neurons in the brain's 'pleasure centre' as coke!
Interestingly enough, that wasn't the only thing they discovered! Rats prefer to
