1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar Consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development. (more…)

- Theory of mind is the term used to describe the understanding of beliefs, desires, motivations, and emotions as mental states that are ascribed to
one’s self and others.
- Theory of mind (ToM) refers to the ability to represent the mental states of others and/or to make inferences about another’s intentions.
- ToM is a specific cognitive ability to understand others as intentional agents.
- ToM means being able to infer the full range of mental states (beliefs, desires, intentions, imagination, emotions, etc.) that cause action
- Theory of Mind is the branch of cognitive science that investigates how we ascribe mental states to other persons and how we use the states to explain and predict the actions of those other persons. (Marraffa, 2001)

- It allows us to distinguish between accidental and intended behavior, and truth and deception.
