Researchers from Queensland University of Technology conducted a study which found drugs used to treat nicotine addiction could also be used to treat sugar addiction - and therefore tackle the obesity epidemic. Researchers likened the effect sugar has on the brain to drugs such as tobacco, cocaine and morphine. "After long-term consumption, this leads to the opposite, a reduction in dopamine levels," explained Professor Selena Bartlett from QUT’s Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation. "This leads to higher consumption of sugar to get the same level of reward."
