You’ll Never Guess #24
A study by nutritional scientists at the University of Michigan has factored those attributes that make food items irresistible and has issued a list of the 35 most “addictive” foods. The top ten items, to the surprise of few, are pizza, chocolate, snack chips, cookies, ice cream, French fries, cheeseburgers, non-diet sodas, cake and cheese. The only somewhat unexpected result is that bacon, at number 11 failed to make the top ten list. Also noticeably absent are buttered popcorn at 14, and breakfast cereal at 15. The five least addictive on the list, in descending order: brown rice, apples, beans, carrots and cucumber. And one counterintuitive finding: out of the most addictive 35, simple water came in at 24. The study was published in the US National Library of Medicine.
