The Holistic Sanctuary Emphasizes ‘Healthy Halloween’ by Challenging Connecticut College Study that Oreos May Be as Addictive as Cocaine

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.

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)

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
