For Health’s Sake, Watch Your Mental Intake

120-Y9IL56J65J5-Glowimages-filling-a-gas-tankYou don’t put sugar in the gas tank of your car, right? And if your car takes “Regular”, you don’t put in ‘Diesel’.

As society becomes more aware that thought affects the body, it becomes clear that it is important for our health that we watch our mental intake.

Consider the following:

  • a 2014 study found that journalists viewing uncensored violent imagery are at increased risk of adverse psychological consequences.
  • “medical students’ disease”, in which 70-80% of medical students experience symptoms of the disease(s) they are studying.
  • Google’s new Knowledge Graph gives searchers medical facts and details on conditions and shows typical symptoms.

Heath reformer Mary Baker Eddy advises, “Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously.”

Watch your intake!
