The Start of 2011, Food for Thought

This year I plan to make more entries than last year, so we shall see.

Here is an interesting link to consider

There is also video that goes along with it.

Here is an interesting quote from DR. GABOR MATÉ

"Well, the first point to get there is that if people who become severe addicts, as shown by all the studies, were for the most part abused children, then we realize that the war on drugs is actually waged against people that were abused from the moment they were born, or from an early age on. In other words, we’re punishing people for having been abused. That’s the first point.

The second point is, is that the research clearly shows that the biggest driver of addictive relapse and addictive behavior is actually stress. In North America right now, because of the economic crisis, a lot of people are eating junk food, because junk foods release endorphins and dopamine in the brain. So that stress drives addiction."
