Oreo’s have been around for years, and they still remain to be one of the public’s favorites. But who knew they have been fattening up our livers, and could be causing the growth of cancerous cells within?

If Oreo’s are your favorite, this is bad news to you. Put them down immediately!

Oreo’s come in 22 different varieties. They were introduced over 100 years ago! More than 70 million Oreos are sold every day around the world. The most known version of Oreos is a classic chocolate cookie with cream in the middle. The first oreo was sold on March 6, 1912. It was sold to a grocer in New Jersey. The modern oreo design was developed by William A. Turnier, and I’m sure he would be very disappointed in the modern day production of the cookie. They contain toxic ingredients that could be cancer causing and be terrible for your liver.

The study was done at Connecticut College by students and their professor. They studied Oreo cookies and their reactions to our bodies. Shockingly, when given to lab rats they produced the same reaction as when given cocaine.

Professor Joseph Schroeder says, “Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do. It may explain why some people can’t resist these foods despite the fact that they know they are bad for them.”  Similarly to drugs, the Oreos stimulate the happy and feel good chemicals in the brain.  The ingredients listed on the label are shocking. They all are pretty much horrible for you.

Read them for yourself:

SUGAR, UNBLEACHED ENRICHED FLOUR (, WHEAT FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE [VITAMIN B1], RIBOFLAVIN [VITAMIN B2], FOLIC ACID) , HIGH OLEIC CANOLA OIL, AND/OR , PALM OIL, AND/OR , CANOLA OIL, AND/OR , SOYBEAN OIL, COCOA (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, CORNSTARCH, LEAVENING (, BAKING SODA, AND/OR , CALCIUM PHOSPHATE) , SALT, SOY LECITHIN, VANILLIN, – AN ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR , CHOCOLATE

High Fructose Corn Syrup is the main addictive ingredient in Oreos. Researchers have found it to be at least as addictive as cocaine. It works as a sweetener, and it is cheaper to produce than sugar. It leads to conditions such as obesity, diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and cardiovascular disease. Another horrible ingredient in Oreo’s is Soy Lecithin. The problem with this is that 93% of soy crops are genetically modified. In a Russian study, it was shown that GMO soybeans are linked to infant mortality.

Most people are already discouraged of Oreos, but there is more. They also contain a substance known as Vanillin. This is a substitute for vanilla. It provides no nutrition whatsoever, and it does cause allergic reactions, digestive disorders, and migraines. Calcium phosphate in Oreo’s was studied by researchers and was shown to pose health risks. It tested to damage blood vessels! Oreo’s should be discontinued after this. They are feeding us poison. Most chillingly, children love Oreo’s. Nobody should be ingesting these horrible cookies, but children definitely shouldn’t. Together we can put an end to companies like Oreo!
