Why We Love Oreos


It’s not often one can write about Oreos and cocaine in the same blog, but that’s exactly what’s on tap today. Recently I came across reference to a study that melted my heart. For one, it was the brainchild of a female undergraduate at a small college, Connecticut College, for two it shows the power of simplicity, and for three it explains why it’s hard to eat just one Oreo or potato chip. The study was inspired by Jamie Honohan, a senior with a desire to become a physician assistant. She was interested in the large rates of obesity in lower-income communities.
