“The commonality between the brain’s reaction to cupcakes and drugs.”
I love to cook but not to make any cakes, pastries, candies, or any of the dainties and desserts of any kind. I personally do not have a sweet tooth—something I probably inherited from my dad. I looked up what ingredients cup cakes are made and as to why the brain would react to it as did to drugs. While there are now vegan cupcakes, etc., the general ingredients are highly refined flour, milk, eggs, butter, salt, baking powder, sugar, vanilla extract, and all kinds of frosting and icing recipes which are made of more of these high cholesterol, high fat, high sugar, and high-empty calorie ingredients. Need we inquire further as to why the brain acts similarly to these “goodies” as with drugs? But of course, both act as powerful and hurtful stimulants!
“The only way to returning to normality is probably dieting for a long time to lose the body weight and not eat junk food.”
If one read for himself with an unprejudiced mind, refusing to listen to all the tirades against E.G. White and her voluminous, progressive writings on this particular topic nearly 160 years ago (See Counsels on Diets and Foods and Counsels on Health, etc.), he would have long benefited from the true light of health reform of the third angel’s message long before modern food and health sciences ever found out. She wrote:
“Our bodies are built up from the food we eat. There is a constant breaking down of the tissues of the body, every movement of every organ of the body requires its share of nutrition. The brain must be supplied with its portion; the bones, muscles, and nerves demand theirs. It is a wonderful process that transforms the food into blood and uses this blood to build up the varied parts of the body; but this process is going on continually, supplying with life and strength each nerve, muscle, and tissue.” – Counsels on Health, pp. 114, 115.
