The love of chips - addiction, similar to the burden to drug use

As you know, potato chips are so tasty that there is no strength to give up them. It is not just like that

As you know, potato chips are so tasty that there is no strength to give up them. This is not just that: after eating chips, our brain feels the same as after taking drugs! 
This conclusion was German scientists. The study involved two groups of experimental rodents. One group was given chips, and the second - ordinary food of natural origin, identical in calories to chips. After the meal, the experts investigated the degree of brain activity of animals using MRI. In rats who tasted chips, brain centers responsible for pleasure were in a state of activity. Moreover, the areas of the brain that are responsible for the emergence of drug or other addiction are activated. 
Even without the use of MRI, it was possible to notice the changed behavior of the rats: the individuals who sat down on crisp chips behaved hyperactively, they showed increased excitability and an obvious state of euphoria. After a short time, lethargy, downturn and apathy followed, which is absolutely characteristic of those who lose their habitual drug. In other words, in rodents the withdrawal syndrome was advancing - a state of "breaking". Animals from the second group behaved as usual, without changes.
After the experiment, scientists shared their views on such a strong dependence on chips: "Most likely this dependence arises because of the content of crisp chips, as in some sweets, special stimuli (triggers) that can stimulate the pleasure center in the brain" .
