The Brain – Fight the New Drug

IMG_8901

Weighing in at only around 3 pounds, it’s amazing how much this one organ is capable of in our bodies! The brain uses 20% of the bodies energy and contains 100 billion nerve cells! There are over 1 trillion supporting cells and each brain cell can contain up to 10,000 connections with other cells! WOW!!! That’s alot of work being done — processing, developing, & creating every second of every day!

It stands to reason that when the brain is exposed to sexual images seen in pornography and other hardcore outlets, it literally explodes to create new neural pathways. The brain’s structure can even change according to the material it’s being fed.

Fight the New Drug is an organization that’s been around for several years spreading awareness about the harmful effects of pornography and offering solutions & resources to help fight back! And while it’s not a Christian organization in nature, the research & imprint they’re making on the culture is amazing! They released a video in the last year or so detailing how the brain reacts to sexually hardcore images.
