Fatty Diet May Cause New Brain Cells to Sprout

Eating too many burgers and fries? Your brain might show the effects, if new mouse research holds true in humans. Researchers have discovered that a high-fat diet causes new brain cells to sprout in an area of the brain that seems to regulate eating.

Mental treatment removes more brain cells than it adds. Do you agree?The shock treatment of mental patients is terrible. I think the shock damages a lot of the patient's brains. Is it true that a defective brain is rectified by removing brain cells rather than adding cells?

When talking to a theological adherent, I sometimes start to laugh, then I realize their completely serious. Everytime my buddy's little daughter starts talking about the bible, as if it's fact, I want to punch her parents in the face. Not only are they injecting illogical information into her...
