Neuroplasticity occurs throughout life and we can teach children (and adults) to regulate harmful negative responses to emotionally charged events.

This is a great illustration of collective phenomena. If you look closely, each dot is just moving around in a regular circle; but because the different circles are out of phase with each other, when you back away you see waves steadily moving across the screen. It's a simple demonstration of how large-scale, collective phenomena can emerge from very simple small-scale behavior. Things like this happen all over the place: water waves and sound waves, for example, work in basically the same way, with the small back-and-forth motions of individual molecules leading to compression patterns moving through the air.

I have worked with patients with eating disorder for 15 years and have observed sugar addiction with many of my patients. In my professional circles I have been discredited when I spoke about this even with the research that is available. One of the problems has been the contradicting research that is funded by the corporations that sell the profitable products that contain sugar.Thank you for your post!
Food #addiction   has been a growing subject in the news as of late.

 +The Economist  recently wrote about the neurological changes that excessive sugar eating can cause. Also, a well written book titled, The Compass of Pleasure by David Linden goes into greater detail about brain circuitry for anyone interested!

What are ways we can educate young families before their eating hobbies become habits?
