The Holistic Sanctuary Emphasizes ‘Healthy Halloween’ by Challenging Connecticut College Study that Oreos May Be as Addictive as Cocaine
Date:10/31/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

The Holistic Sanctuary announces its emphasis on enjoying a Healthy Halloween, while taking issue with a recently published study from Connecticut College, which asserts that Oreo cookies may be as addictive as cocaine.(1) This report, in the expert analysis of the healing professionals at The Holistic Sanctuary, minimizes the seriousness of cocaine addiction, the overdoses and deaths linked to this drug, as well as the toxic treatments used to address this problem.

The study, which continues to generate media coverage from TIME and other news outlets, includes a quote from Professor Joseph Schroeder, Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at Connecticut College, in which he says (in the aftermath of his work on lab rats): “I haven’t touched an Oreo since doing this experiment.”(2) And yet, the statistics involving cocaine addiction are more extensive, exhaustive and clear. For example: In 2010, for which the most recent data is available, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report 40,393 persons died of drug-induced causes in the United States.(3) Alongside these numbers, there are an estimated 3 million individuals in the United States with serious drug problems or addictions to illicit substances.(4)

The Oreo-cocaine comparison further collapses because, one, there are no reports from the CDC or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about “cookie-induced” fatalities. And secondly, since cocaine addiction is a legitimate – and quite often lethal – problem, the numbers should speak for themselves. For example: Approximately 5,000 people die annually from cocaine overdose.(5) And secondly, cocaine abusers – unlike consumers who binge on Oreos – are at an increased risk for contracting such infectious diseases as human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune def
