Study: French Fries Get You High, Man

July 6, 2011

A new study was released that simply confirms what millions of gamers and Cartoon Network fans over the age of 17 already know. Fatty foods like potato chips, french fries and cheesy poofs produce a similar chemical reaction in the body to marajuana. 

The findings were released in the July 5th edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

This mechanism made sense during our early evolutionary development. Fats were relatively rare and when our ancestors found them, it was to their advantage to eat as much as they could. Fats provide a lot of energy for their weight and energy gives a survival advantage.
