Fast Food Brain Damage

The Week: Does fast food cause brain damage?
t's no surprise that eating fast food is bad for you. But just how bad? Recent studies suggest unhealthy foods can actually scar your brain. Here's what you should know: Brain damage? Seriously? Yes. According to a study recently published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, fatty foods damaged the hypothalamus region of the brain in rodents. The hypothalamus produces hormones that control hunger, thirst, sleep, moods, and the natural rhythms of the body.

SF Gate: Relationship Between Fast Food & the Brain | Healthy Eating
You already know that eating large amounts of fast food can cause weight gain because it's high in calories, sugar and fat. Fast food, however, can also have a negative effect on the health of your brain. The lack of nutrients in fast food, as well as the presence of unhealthy ingredients, contributes to a decrease in brain health.

Men's Journal: Eating Junk Food Can Lead to Brain Damage
"Researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia discovered that rats fed high-fat, high-sugar diets had significantly impaired special memory skills after only one week compared to rodents given healthier diets. The junk food–fed rats weren’t able to find objects that the researchers moved around, which was no problem for the other rats. Plus, these animals had inflammation around the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls special memory."

Sustainable Pulse: "US Court Documents Show Monsanto Manager Led Cancer Cover Up for Glyphosate and PCBs | May 19 2017 - The same Monsanto manager, Dr. George Levinskas, who helped hide the carcinogenic potential of PCBs in the 1970s, has now been shown, in California court documents released Tuesday, to have also influenced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the carcinogenic potential of the World’s most used herbicide – glyphosate – in the 1980s.

Sustainable Pulse: "WHO Glyphosate Report Ends Thirty Year Cancer Cover Up," | Mar 26 2015

Shortly after WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) report on glyphosate confirmed glyphosate probably causes cancer in March 2015, Sustainable Pulse discovered EPA documents from 1991 that showed how a Monsanto funded long-term glyphosate safety study on mice, which suggested carcinogenic potential according to the EPA experts, was ‘reviewed’ again until it mysteriously showed no carcinogenic potential. The reason for the EPA review leading to the change in classification was unknown until this week. It is now clear however that the EPA was heavily influenced by Monsanto during the re-classification process.

"Monsanto Years" By Neil Young

You never know what the future holds in the shallow soil of Monsanto, Monsanto
The moon is full and the seeds are sown while the farmer toils for Monsanto, Monsanto
When these seeds rise they're ready for the pesticide
And Roundup comes and brings the poison tide of Monsanto, Monsanto

The farmer knows he's got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto
So he signs a deal for GMOs that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto
Every year he buys the patented seeds
Poison-ready they're what the corporation needs, Monsanto

When you shop for your daily bread and walk the aisles of Safeway, Safeway
Find the package to catch your eye that makes you smile at Safeway, at Safeway
Choose a picture of an old red barn on a field of green
With the farmer and his wife and children to complete the scene at Safeway, at Safeway

Dreams of the past come flooding back to the farmer's mind, his mother and father
Family seeds they used to save were gifts from God, not Monsanto, Monsanto
Their own child grows ill near the poisoned crops
While they work on, they can't find an easy way to stop, Monsanto, Monsanto

Don't care now what the Bible said so long ago not Monsanto, Monsanto
Give us this day our daily bread and let us not go with Monsanto, Monsanto
The seeds of life are not what they once were
Mother Nature and God don't own them anymore
