Jessica Alba showed off a head full of blond hair on Instagram recently, but it seems the color change was a temporary one.
“Research Shows Oreos Are Just As Addictive As Drugs,” says the headline above a recentConnecticut College press release. “…in Lab Rats,” it adds, and I’ll get to that part later. But first note that the study’s findings could just as truthfully be summarized this way: “Drugs Are No More Addictive Than Oreos.” The specific drugs included in the study were cocaine and morphine, which is what heroin becomes immediately after injection. So the headline also could have been: “Research Shows That Heroin and Cocaine Are No More Addictive Than Oreos.” Putting it that way would have raised some interesting questions about the purportedly irresistible power of these drugs, which supposedly justifies using force to stop people from consuming them. But the researchers are not interested in casting doubt on the empirical basis for the War on Drugs; instead they are trying to build an empirical basis for the War on Fat:
“Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do,” [neuroscientist Joseph] Schroeder said. “It may explain why some people can’t resist these foods despite the fact that they know they are bad for them.”…
“My research interests stemmed from a curiosity for studying human behavior and our motivations when it comes to food,” said [neuroscience major] Jamie Honohan. “We chose Oreos not only because they are America’s favorite cookie, and highly palatable to rats, but also because products containing high amounts of fat and sugar are heavily marketed in communities with lower socioeconomic statuses.”…
Even though we associate significant health hazards in taking drugs like cocaine and morphine, high-fat/ high-sugar foods may present even more of a danger because of their accessibility and affordability,” she said.

TMZ reports that the 16- and 17-year-old sisters were spotted heading into Vignette lounge in West Hollywood on Tuesday night, where one must be 21 and older to gain admittance. And it wasn’t just any club the young reality stars hit up. On Tuesdays, Vignette pulls out all the stops for something called Wax Rabbit – “a new, voyeuristic, hip hop and nudity nightclub experience.”
When TMZ spoke to the club’s manager, he claimed that the girls had IDs that said they were 21 and he didn’t recognize them for the famous teenagers they actually are.
When photographers snapped pics of the Jenner sisters inside a car outside the club they looked awfully “tired.”
