Junk Food As Addictive As Illicit Drugs

October 1, 2013 by  

Junk food is addictive.

A recent study by PubMed shows how foods with high glycemic index alter parts of the brain responsible for hunger, thirst and the natural rhythms and body cycles.

High-glycemic foods are highly processed and highly refined. Consuming them creates a spike in blood sugar levels.

Almost every label in the grocery stores shows some kind of sugar or sweetener contents. No warnings are ever given about the highly toxic nature of synthetic sweeteners. Some are more toxic than others, but all can cause multiple diseases from convulsions to diabetes. All accumulate as acid poisons in the human body.

All artificial or synthetic sweeteners should display a skull and crossbones emblem on their packaging.

There is a mountain of research on the extreme danger of synthetic sugars, and I believe that there is no way to have good health while consuming sugar at the same time. No amount of terrorism could come close to the danger of sugar consumption in the United States.

In the PubMed study, researchers split study participants into two groups. One was given a high-glycemic milkshake; another was given a milkshake with the same calorie content and flavor, but with a low glycemic index.

The group fed the high-glycemic shake was hungrier after four hours than the group given the low glycemic shake. Brain scans revealed that those who consumed the high-glycemic shake had an intense response in the area of their brains responsible for pleasure similar to responses when taking heroin or cocaine, indicating the foods were highly addictive.
