And add on that so much of what is available acts like a drug on the brains: TV, highly stimulating conflict movies, bread, and sugar.....

We are born to addiction now.....

I am not impressed with this ďreasoningĒ because we change our brain chemicals every day; not only what we eat, but what we do, the environment we are in, what we are hearing and seeing and interacting with.

When I was a troubled teen, I would do anything to make the screaming in my brain STOP. Food was a drug I could afford.

Now, I donít want those foods, donít want to binge, donít want to mess up what returned health I am enjoying.

And I donít want those foods any more.
