Government Spent $780K to Learn that Pizza is Addictive!

A recent study finding that pizza is as addictive as cocaine was funded with $780,000 in federal money, according to a newly-released congressional report. In late October, a study conducted at the University of Michigan was released which found that pizza and other processed foods (such as french fries and ice cream) are addictive in a manner similar to drugs like cocaine.
