You all have this ‘addictive drug’ in your pantry and are guilty of taking it

Supplied Mary Haddock-Staniland is a PR guru and transgender personality

The writer of the article that I am referring to has an unusual bio underneath their photo. It reads, ‘Mary Haddock-Staniland is a PR guru and transgender personality.’ Identity politics clearly has infested journalism now and readers need to be informed that the writer of the article is an Arthur who wants to be known as Martha.

Was Mary hired to fill a diversity quota? Is this why we have to be told? Maybe I should do the same for my photo? ‘Spanishbride is a housework avoiding guru and a female personality.’

But I digress from the topic of this article. Now, where were we? Oh yes, the ‘addictive drug’ that you have in your pantry that you all are guilty of taking.




‘Transgender personality’ Mary in her article attacking Krispy Kreme has bought into the controversial and scientifically debunked idea that sugar is an addictive drug.

People can become addicted to eating for its own sake but not to consuming specific foods such as those high in sugar or fat, research suggests.

An international team of scientists, including researchers from Aberdeen, has found no strong evidence for people being addicted to the chemical substances in certain foods.

The brain does not respond to nutrients in the same way as it does to addictive drugs such as heroin or cocaine, the researchers say.

Instead, people can develop a psychological compulsion to eat, driven by the positive feelings that the brain associates with eating.

This is a behavioural disorder and could be categorised alongside conditions such as gambling addiction, say scientists at the University of Edinburgh.

They add that the focus on tackling the problem of obesity should be moved from food itself towards the individual’s relationship with eating.[…]

Mary paints the Krispy Kreme franchise as a drug dealer preying on vulnerable people and even refers to them (quite deliberately I feel) as KK to add an extra subconsciously negative aspect to the piece.

The worst part of it is the addictive nature of sugar and what it does to the brain. And like any addiction, one doughnut may satisfy initially, but given time it’s a tray of doughnuts.

Wonder how the Krispy Kreme people feel about that?

They probably feel mad that unscientific misinformation about sugar is being peddled in relation to their products Mary.

[…] So what to do about the doughnuts? I know it sounds corny, but why not bake some cookies at home, it’s got to be cheaper, better for us and it could be a fun thing to do with the children. I know it’s a lot more work, but like the saying goes, you get out of life what you put into it.

Will these cookies have that terrible addictive drug sugar in them?

I was talking to a friend about Krispy Kreme the other day, and he said “oh my gosh, but have you tried them? They are delicious”.[…]
