GLOP

I write about glop a lot. Glop is anything that tempts us into self-defeating behavior. Certainly junk food is right up there in Glopville!

Last week in the Sun Sentinel there was an article that researchers have found that junk food may be as addictive as heroin and cocaine--at least for rats. As we all know rats and people are not that different brain wise. We may not be all that different mind wise either. Think PONZI HERE!

In any event, rats given unlimited access to junk food went for it. They even suffered shocks to get to it. Please don't tell animal rights activists about this research!

As in all addiction they became more attached as time went on and their "addiction" became progressive. "After 40 days of unrestricted access to the junk foods, the rats were then switched to a more nutritious food pellet. They refused to eat, even though they were clearly starving."

WOW!  Rats sound a heck of a lot like people. Pass the potato chips PLEASE.

Bye For Now,

Bill
