I have identified 6 primary mechanisms for this suppression and there are several secondary mechanisms. This leads to chronic cerebral glucose deprivation, to increased cerebral hunger and to consumption of the same foods with the same result, and so the cycle repeats again and again and again...leading to increased risk of obesity/diabetes and heart disease. Note that the initiating and driving influence is chronic cerebral glucose deprivation or hunger, and that can cause incipient dementia (not the reverse as is usually assumed by tamine cycle -- is housed in glial cells and is driven by the enzyme glutamine synthetase. However it is not the threat of hypoglycaemia that is the major metabolic problem in modern humans – it is hyperglycaemia, resulting from consumption of excess refined carbohydrates and sugars. This leads in turn to chronic hyperinsulinism. Both hyperglycaemia and hyperinsulinism trigger and suppress the cerebral glucose pump and therefore prevent glucose entry to the brain – in other words they short circuit the brain. 31
