    Dr. Robert Lusting thinks America needs to go to rehab for sugar addiction.

    According to brain scans, sugar is as addictive as cocaine, the California-based endocrinologist told CBS News' "60 Minutes."

    It causes a euphoric effect that triggers dopamine, the chemical that controls pleasure in the brain.

    The average American eats a third of a pound of sugar every day — 130 pounds a year.

    ..research proves that the sweet stuff causes heart disease and cancer, as well as Type 2 diabetes and obesity. (NY Daily News)
