People snack more during action movies
Discovery News
We know that eating in front of the TV is a guilty pleasure, but new research shows that you're better off watching a talk show while snacking than an action film. When 94 college students were served M&Ms, grapes, carrots and cookies while watching either "Charlie Rose" or "The Island," they found that those watching the highly stimulating "The Island" ate 65 percent more calories than those watching the talk show. Even students watching "The Island" with the sound off ate 46 percent more.

The United Sweets of America

More than oil, more than sports, more than meat, even, sugar is the fuel that keeps America running.
