Does Food Provide The Brain Hardware For Crime & Creativity?
Our “culture of overeating sweet foods” is one of the most common and critical factors driving (neuro) violent behaviors across Jamaica.
Rote-based people are limited to overeating sweet foods rooted by a culture. This excludes the “tastelessness” of abstract goals like eating for nutrition. Jamaica’s rote-based culture of eating mainly sweet foods like sugar, oil/fat and salt has gotten out of control with frontal brain damaging side-effects.
At the heart of this colonially driven rote learning and cultural epidemic, is the Caloric Density measuring the mass of calories (energy) in foods.
People will naturally eat to full their bellies since the sensors in the stomach signal the brain to stop eating when it is full. Oils/Fats are 40 times more caloric than Veggies. Sugars are 15 times more caloric than Veggies. So, a little sugar or oil dressing can disrupt the low caloric intake from your veggies and fruits. The stomach sensors do not check the mixture of foods or their caloric densities, so you must check your foods before you eat. Food has chemical side-effects on the flesh (cells) of the brain similar to its effects on the flesh of other parts of the body.
