7.As a food label is often nothing more than an advert to tempt you to buy the product, you should pay particular attention to the choice of words used.    37     watch out for the word “flavor,” as this may mean that the product contains    38      ingredients. Chocolate-flavor topping, for example, will not contain chocolate, even though chocolate-flavored topping will contain a small percentage—so read carefully. Many manufacturers also use a range of    39     descriptions. Feel-good words intentionally blur the true nature of a product’s source.    40     , “fresh egg pasta,” means that the pasta was indeed made with real and not powdered eggs, but maybe months ago. Words that you can trust are “organic,” “wholemeal,” “natural mineral water,” “Fair Trade,” “free range,” and the “V” vegetarian symbol.

16.【題組】
     Using echo-planar magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging procedure (EP-MRSI) to treat mental illness is a completely different approach only because of the way the magnetism is applied to the brain. The notion that the brain might respond to magnets and electricity actually goes way back. The EP-MRSI study is an example of burgeoning new research on an old idea—that the brain is an electromagnetic organ and that brain disorders might result from disarray in magnetic function. The idea has huge appeal to psychiatrists and patients alike, since for many people the side effects of psychiatric drugs are almost as difficult to manage as the disease itself. Also, 30 percent of the nearly 18.8 million Americans who suffer from depression do not respond to any of the antidepressants available now.
     What is it about the brain that makes it especially receptive to electromagnetic stimulation? A partial answer can be found in the neuron, the electrically and chemically excitable nerve cell that receives, processes, and transmits information in the brain. When neurons are activated by magnets or electricity, the nature of their signals changes—affecting everything from mood to cognition and memory.
