    What do you think is more addicting sugar or high fructose corn syrup? do you think it is as addicting as a drug like cocaine? why or why not?

    Personally I think that any addiction will vary from person to person. Sugar used to help only a little if feeling low. I do still enjoy it now and again. I am not worried that I am addicted to sugar or not.

    Yes! When you eat sugary foods, dopamine (a chemical that makes you feel happy) is released, so sugar=happy. Although we all know sugar isn't exactly good for you, it isn't nearly as bad as cocaine. High fructose corn syrup is just as bad as sugar. Everything in moderation smile
