The National Institutes of Health is spending over $50,000 to study whether college students eat junk food when they drink.

Your tax dollars at work.

the hypothesis that "heavy drinking may lead to unhealthy eating habits surrounding drinking episodes."

I always munched on kale and organic carrots when I drank heavily.

Once the acrid smoke clears, perhaps we'll have a better understanding of drink-driven munchies.

You can be sure that the report concludes "Further study needed."

I'll do the study or $45K...

But don't worry, they're paying in junk bonds...

My favorite junk food story is here at work. Our work is computer related and many of us are overweight (OK obese). Yet in our break room some people sell chips, cookies, candy (20 varieties) and pop. To "fund" an annual party. And we are inundated with programs/insurance incentives to lose weight.

From my distant college years, I also remember some natural herbs and spices that gave you the munchies. I want to be included in any study to check that out.
