Could sugar behave like a dangerous drug?  A new study concludes that sugar influences our brains’ reward centers in essentially the same way as addictive drugs.  When someone has a meaningful or positive experience, whether that be sex, a nice social interaction, or just learning an interesting new fact or skill, the brain sends out a reward, using neurotransmitters like dopamine, that invokes feelings of enjoyment, happiness, or contentment.  Sugar and other drugs can similarly activate this same brain reward system.
