  The Relationship between Greed and Disease
  –Taking Being Greedy for Eating and Drinking as the Main Factor

  Instructor:Director Wang Huaigu

  Bhiksuni: Shi Yinyi

  March 23rd, 2024

  Abstract
  Greed is a universal psychological characteristic of human beings, which represents the desire and pursuit of material goods and power. Disease enters through the mouth, and cold comes from the feet. Do not overeat when hungry, do not drink when thirsty. If you eat a meal 80 per cent, you will have a good stomach and intestines in your old age.
  If you eat and sleep too much, you will get sick and lose years of life. These folk wisdoms fully illustrate the great relationship between food and disease. In fact, the relationship between “eating” and disease has long been revealed in the Buddhist scriptures, and in the Tripitaka Dharma Number, it is stated: “If you are greedy for too much food, you can have all kinds of diseases. This is the cause of illness: excessive craving for food is the cause of all illnesses. The focus of this study is to examine how gluttony affects physical and mental health, and the interrelationship between gluttony and disease through the perspectives of medicine, psychology and Buddhism. The results of this study show that gluttony is the main culprit of disease, and the resulting behaviors and attitudes induce physical, mental, and affliction diseases.

  Key words: greed, disease, affliction disease, main culprit

Chapter 1 Introduction

  Diet is an integral part of people’s lives in contemporary society. However, due to the fast pace of modern life, high pressure of life, and modernization of food supply, many people tend to be gluttonous, i.e., over-eating or consuming excessive amounts of food.
  This kind of gluttony not only has a negative impact on personal health, but also places a burden on society and the environment. Greedy eating and over-consumption are closely related to obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and certain cancers. In addition to physical problems, gluttony can have a serious impact on mental health.
  Many studies have pointed out that eating disorders such as bulimia and even satiety are closely related to psychological problems such as mood, anxiety and depression. This kind of greedy desire not only consumes the body’s energy, but also leads to anger, suspicion, jealousy and other affliction diseases, creating a vicious cycle from which people cannot extricate themselves.
  The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of gluttony on personal health. By studying the association between gluttony and obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, anxiety disorders (anger, suspicion, and envy), and psychological disorders, it is possible to better control one’s diet and ensure a healthy body and mind.
  The text is divided into four main chapters: Chapter 1: Introduction; Chapter 2: Definition of Greed and Disease; Chapter 3: The Relationship between Greed (Greedy for Eating) and Disease; and Chapter 4: Conclusion, which summarizes the main points of this thesis.

Chapter 2 Definitions of Greed and Disease

Section 1: Definition of Greed

  What is greed? It is written in Volume 2 of the Sutra on the Precious Rain Preached By the Buddha, “If the mind holds on to all the means of living them, it is always said to be covetous.” If one’s mind holds on to all the means of living, then one is greedy.
  In Volume 1 of The Secret Record of the Surangama Sutra, it is said, “The each desire of others to gain for themselves is called greed.” The every desire to possess all the things of others is greed.
  The Volume 5 of Mahayana Meaning Chapter says, “The love of the five external desires is called greed. To love and cling to wealth, sex, fame, food, and sleep is called greed.

Section 2: Definition of Disease

  What is Disease? Disease, in medical terms, is simply called illness. Disease is an abnormal process of life activity that occurs when the body is under the damaging effect of a certain cause, due to a disturbance of self-regulation.
  It is a state of life existence caused by certain reasons, in this state, the human body’s form or function undergoes certain changes, normal life activities are restricted or damaged, either early or late to show detectable symptoms, the end of this state of affairs can be the recovery or long-term residual, or even lead to death.
  How is illness defined in Buddhism? The Buddha says in Volume 4 of Slight Theory of the Bodhisattva Precepts of the Brahma Net Sutra, “The four great elements are the bodies which have the four hundred and forty diseases. The word “hundred” is used today to refer to one of the four. This is just a brief example of one of the four.” It is not difficult to realise from this paragraph that there are four hundred and forty diseases in the bodies of the four great elements, and this is only a brief description.
  The Volume 40 of Maha Sangha Law, defines it this way: “What are the diseases? Old age and weakness, sickness, vomiting, haemorrhaging from a pricked head, and so on.”
  And Volume 38 of Maha Sangha Discipline says, “What are the diseases? Old age and sickness, weakness and emaciation, cold food and vomiting, and unhappiness.” If any of these conditions occur in the body, it is disease.

Chapter 3: The Relationship between Greed and Disease

  Now that the definitions of greed and disease have been understood, what is the relationship between greed and eating and disease? First of all, from the medical and Buddhist point of view, the excessive pursuit of material desires will lead to bad eating habits,such as excessive consumption of high-sugar, high-fat foods, or smoking, or excessive drinking will lead to obesity, diabetes, gout, cancer, constipation, hypertension and other physical diseases.
  In addition, it will also make people’s three karmas difficult, jealousy, intense anger, strong suspicion, increasing ignorance and dementia. Secondly, psychologically speaking, greedy eating can also lead to anxious disorder, anxiety disorder and other psychological disorders.

Section 1: Physical Diseases Caused by Greedy Eating

  1 Obesity
  Obesity has become a public health problem all over the world, and the International Task Force on Obesity (TOTF) has pointed out that obesity will become the biggest threat to human health and life satisfaction in the new century. There is no denying that obesity has been called a number of diseases and has been a serious threat to our health.
  So what exactly is obesity? Obesity is a chronic social disease. The body’s intake of calories is higher than consumption, resulting in excessive fat accumulation in the body, resulting in overweight, bloated, the actual measurement of body weight more than the standard weight percent above, and the fat percentage (F%) more than 30% of the person is called obese.
  Commonly known as obesity is the excessive accumulation of fat in the body. For example, the following kinds of food eaten in excess, will lead to obesity. If you eat more protein energy than your body needs, it is stored as fat. Protein-containing foods are mostly meat, eggs, dairy, soybeans, grains, vegetables and fruits also have a small amount of protein.
  Protein-rich foods (meat, eggs, milk, soybeans) are high in fat, and more of these foods will have more fat with them. Eating more processed sugar can also lead to obesity. One gram of artificial carbohydrates or one gram of protein produces only 4 kilocalories, while one gram of fat produces 9 kilocalories, so eating a little more fat is the same as eating a lot more carbohydrates or protein.
  Vegetable oil contains more fat than the same weight of fat meat, because fat meat contains water, protein, fiber tissue in addition to fat. Some people say, “I can avoid obesity by not eating fatty meats and only eating veggie oils.” In essence, it is a misunderstanding, melon seeds, peanuts, walnuts, pine nuts, hazelnuts, the composition of almost half of the food of summer fruits and other such hard fruits is fat.
  Foods containing carbohydrates are grains, legumes, milk, fruits, dried fruits and vegetables. In the past, when the standard of living was low, the side dishes were poor, and it was common for the average person to eat four or five taels of staple food per meal. Now that the standard of living has improved, the side dishes are better, and the staple food is still four or five taels of overdose.
  Excessive snacking will trigger obesity, especially when people feel bored with life or eat too many snacks while watching TV. Snacks have almost all the ingredients of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Eating snacks is equal to eating energy, and some snacks are also very high in energy, such as hard fruit foods contain more oil, bananas, pistachios, cashews, potato chips, puffed food contains more starch, candy, dried fruit, sweet drinks contain more sugar, beef jerky, fish fillets contain more protein, which produces more energy can not be consumed, it will be stored in the form of fat.
  In addition, drinking alcohol will also trigger obesity, because wine is a high-calorie beverage, 1 gram of alcohol can produce 7 kilocalories, second only to the calories produced by fat, although the alcohol content of beer is only about 3%, but there is also 11% of the degree of sugar, and the amount of beer to drink is much larger.
  A bottle of beer produces calories equivalent to 100 grams of grain calories. Drinking a lot of wine is equivalent to eating a lot more food, and the excess energy will also be stored in the form of fat, leading to an increase in body weight.
  The author knows some people who love to drink beer, the body is very fat, there will be a beer belly, as a few months of pregnant women .

  2 Diabetes
  Currently, China has become the country with the largest number of diabetes patients in the world. 2020 published the sixth large-scale epidemiological survey on diabetes, the total number of diabetes patients in China is about 129.8 million.
  Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorders caused by absolute or relative insufficiency of insulin secretion and reduced insulin sensitivity of target tissue cells, resulting in a series of metabolic disorders of proteins, fats, and electrolytes, of which hyperglycemia is the main hallmark.
  It is a chronic disease in which insulin secretion increases when we consume too much sugar. However, too much insulin is resistant to the cells and prevents them from properly absorbing glucose from the blood. This leads to an increase in blood glucose levels and eventually to diabetes.
  Prolonged high blood sugar levels can damage blood vessels and nerves, especially in the eyes, kidneys and heart. Diabetes can also lead to foot ulcers and infections, and may even lead to amputation.
  According to Guangdong Television reported in August 2021, 29-year-old Ms. Lin in Guangzhou did not expect that she, who usually has no chronic diseases and is in good physical condition, would suddenly vomit, abdominal pain, fever, dizziness …… and multi-organ and multi-system failure within a short period of time, and was eventually diagnosed with fulminant type 1 diabetes mellitus, combined with shock, pancreatitis, myocarditis etc., life critical.
  Doctors said that Ms. Lin had a dozen sweet drinks a few days before admission to the hospital, and usually drink milk tea. Can sweet drinks really cause diabetes? Dr. Hong Jing, chief physician of the Endocrinology Department at China-Japan Friendship Hospital, said in a 2013 article in the Health Times that after drinking the beverages, the sugar in the beverages stayed in the body, some of which was absorbed into the bloodstream and increased blood sugar, and some of which went to the liver to be stored.
  Sugar in drinks also produces heat when it enters the body. For example, the heat two 600-milliliter bottles of beverages are equivalent to the heat provided by about 2.5 taels of main meals . If you consume a sugary drink at 4pm and eat normally at dinner, there are more calories left in your body. Calorie overload, obesity and diabetes naturally follow. It can be said that the direct cause of diabetes is calorie overload, and sugar and sweet drinks are the catalyst.
  The author also heard a diabetic so-and-so said has been sick for many years, at least going to the hospital to review once a year, for diabetes complications of fear is also increasing. Many “diabetics” are still able-bodied when they met a few years ago, but when they met again in the review, they have already had their eyeballs removed or even their limbs amputated due to complications. As mentioned above, eating high-fat and high-sugar foods may cause the body to produce too much glucose, which in turn triggers diabetes.

  3 Gout
  What is gout? Gout is a recurrent inflammatory disease caused by increased purine biosynthesis metabolism, excessive production of uric acid or poor excretion of uric acid, resulting in elevated uric acid in the blood, urate crystals deposited in the synovial membrane of the joints, the bursa, the cartilage and other tissues.
  Why do people get gout? What are the causes of gout? The A+ Medical Encyclopedia describes it this way: Gout can be triggered by diet, weather changes such as sudden temperature and pressure changes, and trauma. After some foods are metabolized, some of their derivatives can trigger the re-dissolution of uric acid crystals that have accumulated in the soft tissues, which can trigger and aggravate arthritis.
  For example, a long-term diet of high-purine foods: internal organs (liver, kidney), red meat (beef, lamb), seafood (shrimp, crab, shellfish), etc., will produce a large amount of uric acid, which can trigger gout.
  Excessive intake of food containing high sugar content, such as soft drinks, desserts, candies, etc., will lead to elevated uric acid in the body and increase the risk of gout. According to some doctors, 30% of those who feast constantly will suffer from gout, and those who often eat hot pot will suffer from gout more.
  This is because hot pot ingredients are mainly animal offal, shrimp, shellfish, seafood, and then drink beer, naturally adding oil to the fire. Investigation proved: shabu hot pot is 10 times higher, or even dozens of times higher than a meal intake of purine. A bottle of beer can double the uric acid.
  A certain gentleman was a great fan of hot pot by nature, and then when his position was promoted, he had even more opportunities to socialize. Big fish and meat, raw seafood, almost every other day someone invited, not a few years later the joint pain.
  Later, the joint pain was too much to bear and had to go to the hospital. Doctors said that the pain in the joints is indeed related to gluttony. No wonder, Mr. Zhang found that the sudden onset of joint pain have occurred in the night of the day after the feast a number of times

  4 Cancer
  In today’s society, deep-fried food is popular among the public, such as doughnuts, deep-fried cakes, fried chicken legs, French fries, deep-fried blossom beans and other fried foods. Attractive aroma, crisp texture are very appetizing. Many people will be fried food as a delicacy, more preference.
  So some people eat fries for breakfast, eat fried chicken legs for lunch, and also eat fried fish for dinner, and have French fries ,fried potato chips when watching TV at night. However, they do not know if they eat more these fried food, they will produce a variety of diseases, such as cancer is one of them. When food is fried, high temperature cooking process will form carcinogenic substances, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds and acrylamide.
  These compounds are believed to have damaging effects on body cells, and these carcinogens will further increase the risk of cancer, especially the risk of liver cancer. One of the author’s relatives at home, who used to eat deep-fried doughnuts, fried dumplings, fried dough twist, and fried animal carcasses, finally felt sick and went to the hospital for check-ups, and was found to have liver cancer, and passed away at a very young age.

  5. Hypertension
  Hypertension is a clinical syndrome characterized by increased arterial blood pressure in the body circulation (systolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 90 mmHg), which may be accompanied by functional or organic damage to organs such as the heart, brain, and kidneys. Dietary factors are one of the most important factors affecting the occurrence of hypertension, such as high salt diet, high fat diet, high sugar diet, alcohol consumption, etc.
  1. High salt diet: excessive salt intake will lead to increased sodium ion concentration in the body, causing fluid retention and increased blood volume, which in turn increases the burden on the heart and leads to increased blood pressure. Foods high in salt include processed foods (e.g. instant foods, canned foods), pickled foods and salty snacks.
  2. High-fat foods: Consuming too much saturated fat and trans fat may increase the risk of arterial wall blockage, which increases the burden on the heart, and in turn increases blood pressure. High-fat foods include red meat, processed meat products, fried foods and butter.
  3. High sugar diet: excessive sugar intake will lead to weight gain and metabolic abnormalities, which in turn increase the risk of high blood pressure.
  4, High coffee, high alcohol beverages: excessive intake of caffeine leads to increased blood pressure. Caffeine is a strong stimulant that can increase blood pressure. Excessive consumption of alcohol will increase blood pressure and damage the heart and blood vessels.
  The author’s father is a patient with high blood pressure and heart disease. He has always been fond of eating foods high in sugar and salty preserved foods, such as preserved meat and fish, pickles, and salty snacks. He puts a lot of oil and salt in his family’s dishes, including soup dishes, three times a day. Every time the blood pressure rises, after cutting off the oil and salt, the blood pressure drops straight down.
  It is worth mentioning that a diet high in fat and cholesterol will lead to higher levels of lipids and cholesterol in the blood, increasing the risk of atherosclerosis, which can lead to cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease and stroke.
  For example, Bill Clinton did not have a very healthy diet when he was the President of the United States, and he often indulged in foods high in fat and cholesterol, including hamburgers, French fries, pizza and fast food. This diet led to his heart surgery in 2004, and he has suffered from a variety of cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and atherosclerosis.

  6 Cardiovascular and Chronic Diseases
  People who eat a high-sugar diet over a long period of time will not only trigger high blood pressure, but a large number of studies have shown that sugary drinks are the cause of many chronic diseases.
  Research has proven that a long-term diet high in sugar can increase the risk of many chronic diseases. A study by the University of Oxford found that eating more sugary foods such as chocolate and candy is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and death in middle-aged adults. WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Overeating leads to brain dysfunction, triggering a range of damages that can lead to diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.
  All of the above is from a medical point of view, and there is indeed a direct relationship between diet and the development of various diseases. Then, in many Buddhist scriptures, it is also mentioned that a greedy diet can lead to various diseases. For example, in the Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva, it is said, “If one encounters a person who eats and drinks excessively, he is said to be hungry, thirsty, and phlegmatic.” If one encounters a person who eats and drinks indiscriminately, love eating and drinking , Earth Store Bodhisattva will tell him that he will suffer from hunger, thirst, and pharyngeal diseases.
  In Volume 2 of The Sutra of the Buddha on Unprecedented Causes and Conditions, it is said, “If one eats too much, and if one’s food is not consumed, then one will be afflicted with many diseases.” It is also mentioned in Volume 4 of the Sutra on the Composition of the Hundred Conditions, “When the people were greedy for too much food, they could not digest it, and all kinds of sicknesses arose, and each of them came to the king’s place to ask for medicines.” In these two places, it is mentioned that too much gluttony leads to indigestion and various diseases.
  It is also written in Volume 2 of the Sutra on the Conditions of the Two Brahmans in White Clothes and Golden Pennants, “If one has a lot of craving, one’s face and body will be thin and weak.” If one has a lot of craving, one’s face and body will be thin and weak and sickly. As stated in Volume 1 of the Buddha’s Nirvana Sutra, “Do not crave for food and taste; do not eat too much; those who eat too much will be sick”.

Section 2: Greedy for Eating Leads to Affliction Diseases

  From the previous section, it is clear that gluttony can lead to all kinds of illnesses in the body. Not only that, but also gluttony leads to anger, suspicion, jealousy and other disturbing diseases.As Dharma Commentary on the Subsequent Offerings of the Great Vairocana Sutra’s says, “And excessive eating increases vexation, which is difficult to subdue, so it must be measured.” Therefore, it is clear that excessive eating is a factor in the growth of vexation.

  1 Anger
  When one develops a craving for a particular delicacy but is unable to satisfy that craving, one feels a sense of loss and frustration. This sense of loss is often transformed into anger and anger toward others.
  For example, a certain A is very fond of a specific kind of cake that must be purchased on Taobao. He finally received it on this day and put it in the refrigerator, intending to enjoy it in the evening. However, A’s brother was so hungry that he ate two-thirds of the cake at lunchtime because he didn’t order it. When A came home in the evening and saw the remaining cake, he couldn’t satisfy his craving at all, and immediately became very angry with his brother.
  When I was a child, I loved cakes and desserts, but my family was poor and could not afford to buy them. Whenever I saw my favorite food outside and could not afford to buy it, I would complain that my parents were too incompetent and could not even give me what I wanted to eat, so why was I born into such the poor family?

  2 Doubt and envy
  When people can’t crave a certain kind of food, there is a common psychological reaction: suspicion. They begin to doubt the fairness of others, begin to doubt the fairness of heaven, and even begin to doubt the fairness of the whole world.
  For example, Zhang San and Li Si are sisters-in-law who eat at the same table every day, and the food is prepared by their parents-in-laws. Whenever Zhang San sees her favorite dish placed in front of Li Si, she suspects that her parents-in-laws favor Li Si and are too unfair to herself.
  It is the same in the workplace, too, coworkers occasionally buy snacks for each other. When Zhang San sees that the snacks bought by another person are not his favorite, he will suspect that this person has a problem with him and deliberately buys snacks that I don’t like. He even suspects that the god and the world are unfair to him and always asks himself why I can’t have the food I crave.
  Moreover, this suspicion easily spreads to envy, and thus to jealousy of those who can obtain food with ease. As it says in Volume 12 of The Sutra of the Fundamental Rituals of the Great Square Grand Bodhisattvas Collection of Manjushri , “And the man that is greedy for food and sickly is jealous of others.”

  3 Power of ignorance Increases
  The experts of the World Health Organization (WHO) Children’s Health Division proposed: excessive gluttony of children with low IQ. Some parents say that their children are particularly gluttonous, no matter what food they see are greedy, eat up not enough, in order not to aggravate the child, as long as the child wants to eat ,they let him eat.
  These parents also wrongly believe that children eat more will grow faster, but also get smart. Especially some new mothers and fathers always worried about the child does not eat enough to affect the development of the child, so they let the child eat without stop , in addition to the basic three meals a day, will be extra to the child to eat snacks. They do not know, such behavior is not only not conducive to the physical development of the child, but also conducive to the child’s intellectual development , and will make the child stupid.
  Foreign pediatric experts found that: eating too much in childhood will cause bloating of the belly, bad digestion and malabsorption, if they are in such long-term state, then the character will also become impatient, become abnormally slow to respond to things for the outside world, have poor concentration and so on.
  After eating, food has to be digested and absorbed through the peristalsis and secretion of gastric juice in the gastrointestinal tract, and if a child eats too much at once, or keeps eating non-stop, then the blood at the stomach and intestines, due to insufficiency, will be mobilized to the gastrointestinal tract from all parts of the human body, including the blood of the brain. And if the brain is in a state of prolonged ischemia, then the development of the brain will also be affected.
  American pediatric experts in the study found that too much food in childhood will cause belly fullness, digestion and malabsorption, if they are long-term like this, it will also make the character become impatient and irritable, slow response to external things, distracting attention .
  Is it true that only children who are greedy for food will become more and more stupid? No. This is true of all people who are greedy for food. For example, people who eat french fries and so on, in serious cases, even cause Alzheimer’s disease. There are also many people who love popcorn, however, do not realize that the large amount of lead in popcorn can seriously affect the human body’s IQ. Studies have found that:
  1. Gluttony can lead to constipation and thus harm the brain
  In life, if the people are dominated by deep-fried, high-calorie diet will lead to constipation. Because these foods in the process of processing are removed a large amount of fiber, after eating it is easy to get constipation, once one has constipation, the body will have a lot of metabolites accumulated in the digestive tract, these metabolites will produce a large number of harmful substances, which are easy to stimulate the brain, so that the brain nerve cells will have chronic poisoning.
  The author myself is a real-life example, since childhood, I like to eat fried things, including vegetables are to be fried to eat, I do not like boiled dishes, do not like to eat coarse grains. For many years I have been suffering from constipation, with age increasing, I also more and more feel that my brain “turns slowly”.

  2. Gluttony makes the brain premature aging
  Because too much satiety, the body will produce a kind of brain premature aging substances – fiber sprout cell growth factor. Scientists in a study found that a substance that can promote premature aging of the brain – fiber sprout cell growth factor, will increase tens of thousands of times due to over-satiation diet, which is a substance that can promote atherosclerosis, and thus in the long run, gluttony will make the brain premature aging.

  3. Being Greedy for eating increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease
  In particular, people who are greedy for refined rice and white flour increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Alcohol will also affect the function of the brain and cerebellum, long-term drinkers may also cause mental confusion, memory loss and other symptoms, serious damage to brain health.
  In addition, margarine contains trans-fatty acids, and studies have shown that excessive intake of these fatty acids not only leads to cognitive impairment but also affects memory! Those who consume it regularly will increase the risk of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease.

  4. Greedy drinkers of sugary beverages are more likely to suffer from memory loss
  The intake of high fructose as well as sweeteners (aspartame) may cause damage to the brain’s midbrain function, memory function and also cognitive function.

  5. Gluttony will inhibit the brain’s intelligent region physiological functions
  Human brain activity is induced each other excitement and inhibition , that is, some parts of the brain is excited, some of its neighboring parts of the region is in a state of inhibition, the more the excitement is strengthened, the inhibition of the surrounding parts of is deepened, and vice versa.
  In addition, there are also studies found that Once the human body long-term intake of trans fatty acids and saturated fatty acids, processed foods, seafood containing heavy metals, refined carbohydrates, high fructose, and sweeteners, etc. enters the human body, the human brain nerves will cause great damage to the human body, so that the more you eat, the more stupid you are, and the more silly you become.

Section 3: Being Greedy Diets Causes Mental Illnesses

  Milk tea, cola, desserts …… For many people, the deliciousness of these drinks and foods is really hard to resist. However, recently researchers from Tsinghua University and the Central University of Finance and Economics published a research paper in the Journal of Affective Disorders , which shows that drinking milk tea may lead to addiction and is associated with depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation.
  Previously, numerous studies have shown that frequent drinking of sugary drinks or eating sweets can also be addictive, and high sugar and calorie intake is very bad for health.

  1. Bulimia
  Bulimia itself is a disease. In serious cases, people cannot control their eating behavior. This is bulimia. It is mentioned in A+ Medical Encyclopedia that Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent and irresistible desire to eat, and binge eating behavior.

  2. Depression
  Eating disorders can force people to use food to cope with emotional stress, but the temporary satisfaction may later trigger guilt and depression. In the long run, food becomes an antidote to negative emotions, jeopardizing mental health.

  3. Anxiety
  Overeating can lead to body image anxiety, especially when weight gain or appearance is affected. This kind of anxiety makes people feel lower self-esteem, social difficulties and emotional agitation. Moreover, overeating increases the stress and burden of the patient. At the same time, it also reduces an individual’s sense of value and self-esteem, which can damage mental health.
  Researchers from Tsinghua University and the Central University of Finance and Economics analyzed data from more than 5,000 college students in Beijing, and collected the frequency of milk tea consumption, symptoms of depression and anxiety, and suicidal ideation of the participants through questionnaires.
  The researchers also created the Milk Tea Addiction Questionnaire, which investigated the trend of milk tea addiction, and analyzed the impact of milk tea addiction on the mental health of adolescents. The results suggest that milk tea consumption may lead to addiction symptoms and increase the risk of anxiety.

Chapter 4 Conclusion

  In this thesis, by exploring the various ways in which craving for food and drink triggers many diseases, it has been found out that it is directly the root cause of physical and mental problems in human beings. Finally, it is concluded that “gluttony is the main culprit in causing diseases”.
  With the help of this article on the relationship between gluttony and disease, I hope to awaken the public to the fact that disease enters through the mouth and that they must control their diets firmly so that they will not regret too much under the claws of the demon of disease, and that they will be able to free themselves from the pitfalls of gluttony as soon as possible, and regain their health and inner peace. There are many deficiencies in the writing of this article, and I pray that you will bear with me and be generous with your advice if I am not careful.
