Academics with the help of MRI examined the brains of children and adolescents whose age varies from 7 to 17 years.

The children were asked to drink plain water and soda, after which their brains were scanned on an MRI.

And it turned out that after soda there was activity in the area of ​​the brain that is responsible for alcohol dependence. This is due to the fact that sugar, like alcohol and drugs, produces the "happy hormone" dopamine.

As a result, scientists have established a connection – children who like to eat a lot of sweets, have a lot of chances in adult life to get alcohol or other addiction.
